However, it was gathered that Umar was divorced by her husband but got involved with the new man identified as Buba Musa, with whom she had the baby.

Umar, while speaking to newsmen at the State Command expressed regret for her action.

After administering the chemical, she told her neighbours that her baby had become sick, but her neighbours became suspicious of her because they heard her conversation with the boy that she sent to buy the poison.

Musa admitted to having impregnated Amina after she was divorced by her husband, denied knowledge of Amina’s plan to kill the baby.

Commenting on the matter, the Spokesman of the Adamawa State Police Command, DSP Suleiman Nguroje, said the suspects will be charged to court after due investigation had been completed.
