Two nurses had been arrested through the police for allegedly trafficking a newly born child baby girl in Katsina state.
The Spokesman of Katsina State Police Command, Gambo Isah stated the nurses diagnosed as Misira Tijjani and Grace Ejigu had been arrested on July 28 after a tip-off. They reportedly conspired and bought the kid to at least one 45-year-old Eucharia Onyema of Sabuwar Kasuwa quarters in the state.
The Spokesman of the State Police Command Isah said;
“On July 25th 2020 at about 10:00hrs, one Shamsiyya Sani, aged 25 years of Dandagoro quarters, Katsina was delivered of a baby girl at Okomos Clinic, Kofar Kaura, Katsina.
“She later abandoned the child at the hospital with a handwritten note stating that she was born out of wedlock hence the abandonment.
“Nemesis caught up with them when they were arrested on their way from the hospital to their houses with the child through the help of a Keke Napep rider who suspected them of stealing of the child. An investigation is ongoing.”
