Her mother, Malama Fati Mohammed, 22, said the deceased was her first child. Before the unfortunate incident, I prepared the child for the day’s trip to an Islamic school which both of us attended. Subsequently, I realised she had poured water on her blouse and I was forced to find a new dress for her. But she sneaked out to her usual playground, only for one of her playmates to come back home with her pant.
She said her daughter had since been buried in accordance with Islamic rites after the police released the corpse to the family for burial. Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Richard Oguche, confirmed the incident, pointing out that the police had commenced investigations into the case and that the perpetrators would soon be arrested. Oguche advised parents to always care for their children and report suspicious persons to the law enforcement agents in order to curtail criminal activities in the society.
