According to Plateau News Online, Abdullahi who lives at the new Abuja area in Jos South Local Government Area, reportedly sold the baby to Ezekiel who is from Mangu Local Government Area and travels to the eastern parts of the country to buy palm oil.

But while the police station, Ezekiel denied buying the baby, insisting that she had an agreement with Abdullahi who gave her the baby to raise as her own since she (Abdullahi), could not raise the child.

“We had an agreement and swore to keep it between us. She gave me the baby to raise as mine.”
