Missing three-month baby found raped in uncompleted building in Nasarawa


A three-month-old baby is currently battling for her life at the Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH) after she was allegedly raped by an unknown assailant.

It was gathered that the incident happened at Adogi village in Nasarawa State around midnight on 27 May 2020 when the family was asleep and the door to their room left open due to heat being experienced in the area.

The assailant was said to have stolen the baby, who was sleeping beside her mother – one Maimuna Adam – and taken her to an uncompleted building where he defiled her.

On discovering her baby had gone missing, Maimuna raised an alarm which woke people in the compound and others in the village.
