According to a source who made the disclosure, the baby who had been crying uncontrollably demanding to see her mother who was said to have left her father (Abdulrahman) a few months ago, suddenly went missing from her father’s house on Tuesday and all efforts to find her failed.
An eyewitness disclosed that her remains were later found on Wednesday at an uncompleted building near their residence at the Wadatta area of Makurdi, Benue state.
It was gathered that the child’s mother had separated from Khadijah’s father after which he went and married another woman, who is now suspected to be behind her murder.
After much interrogation, Khadija reportedly confessed to stoning the little girl to death but didn’t explain why. She is currently in Police custody and would soon be charged to court.
