download (10)The Kastina State Police Command is holding a family of five in its custody for allegedly feeding a day-old baby boy to a dog as meal. The incident happened at Saika village in Batsari Local Government Area. The suspects include fifteen-year-old Wosila Halilu, her three stepbrothers and her mother.


It was alleged that Wosila, who is the mother of the baby, got pregnant after she was raped by a twenty-seven year-old farmer, Musa Garba. She alleged that the farmer lured her into his farm where he committed the act. Police sources said the family viewed the pregnancy and subsequent delivery of the baby as shameful, since she was not married. They, therefore, held a meeting where it was alleged that Wosila’s mother and her step brothers decided that the baby should be fed to a dog.
