STEP-DAD ARRESTED FOR SEXUALLY VIOLATING A 7 MONTH OLD BABY: baby IN HOSPITAL



A seven-month old baby girl is now on admission at the Turai Umar Yar’Adua Maternity and Children Hospital, Katsina, after she had been allegedly raped by her step father, Magaji Dansale.

The baby girl (name withheld), was admitted at the hospital on Wednesday after a referral from the General Hospital, Malumfashi, where doctors there confirmed the alleged sexual violation.

The baby’s father, Ibrahim Nuhu, told journalists at the premises of the hospital in Katsina on Thursday that the incident occurred at Dangaski village in Musawa Local Governm ent Area of the state.

He explained that the baby’s mother, Zinai Mgaji, had separated from him and remarried the accused.

Ibrahim, who spoke in Hausa, said sometime last week, Zinai approached him, complaining that the baby had piles which made blood to gush out of her vagina and anus.

He said he then took the baby to the General Hospital, Malumfashi, where the doctors, after examining the baby, insisted that the Police must be involved, as it was a rape case and not piles as claimed by the mother.

The baby’s anus and vagina were said to have been severely injured due to the forceful penile penetration.

Doctors at the General Hospital said the injury could only have happened due to forceful penetration of the baby’s vagina.

The baby was consequently referred to the Turai Umar Yar’Adua Maternity and Children Hospital, Katsina, for further treatment, while the Police were called in.

The baby’s mother, Zinai, also told journalists on Thursday that sometime last week, she woke up from an unusual long sleep to find traces of blood and water in the baby’s private part.

According to her, she assumed that the baby had piles. She added that the day following her observation, the accused, that is, Magaji, gave her some clothes to wash, among which was a pair of trousers stained with blood and sperm.

Police sources in Katsina said Magaji had already been arrested in connection with the incident.

When contacted, spokesman for Katsina State Police Command, DSP Isah Gambo, said the details of the incident and other issues would be addressed at a press conference tomorrow (Friday) by the Police Commissioner, Usman Abdullahi.
