A 3-month-old baby has been hospitalized at Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH), after she was allegedly raped by an unknown individual in Adogi, Nasarawa State.
According to the mother, Maimuna, she left her door and windows opened due to the excessive heat on May 27, 2020, when all of a sudden she woke up and couldn’t find her daughter beside her.
After she raised an alarm, the whole area went out in search of the baby and was later found raped and abandoned in a classroom.
Speaking with Daily Trust, Maimuna, mother of the victim said, “The incident occurred on Wednesday 27 of last month when suddenly I woke up around 3am and found that my baby was missing.
I checked my phone which was also close to me before I slept, but it was also missing. Everywhere across her private part was blood and then we rushed her to the hospital.”
Maimuna said a day after the incident, a family member had reported the case to a police station in Adogi for prompt action but there was no any response so far.
The baby is presently receiving treatment at the JUTH, Plateau State and she had already undergone 3 surgeries, waiting for a fourth one.
