2 men in Nasarawa State have been arrested by the police for for allegedly killing his 3-week old child.

Nasarawa State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Ramhan Nansel in a statement says the arrest of the suspects followed intensive manhunt while the suspects were in lam after committing the crime on October 11 in Lafia, Nasarawa.

It explains that the principal suspect Abdulkadir Ahmed who is 40-years-old asked his friend Hassan Sabo also of the same age, to lure his estranged wife and mother of his three-week old baby to his shop opposite Correctional Facility in Lafia under the pretext of seeking reconciliation with her.

When she arrived at the shop, Abdulkadir Ahmed took the child into the shop while Hassan Sabo engaged her in a discussion outside and suddenly, the child screamed and went quiet.

Abdulkadir Ahmed immediately came out of the shop and the mother enquired to know why the child screamed but was told that the child has gone to sleep.

Not satisfied, she rushed into the shop and discovered the lifeless body of her child as the culprits immediately left the scene on a motorcycle while the body was evacuated to Dalhatu Araf Specialist Hospital, Lafia by the police for post-mortem examination.

The statement further adds that the state Commissioner of Police, Adesina Soyemi ordered thorough investigation into the dastardly act.
