A Kano State-based businessman has been arrested for allegedly raping a six months old baby with the support of his wife.
According to Aishat Alubankudi, human rights activist who reported the sordid incident, the baby girl identified as Khadijah Bashir was by the man who is the husband of her mother's friend.
Alubankudi who narrated how the incident happened, said the man and his wife had been childless since they got married and in their quest for a baby, they visited a native doctor who advised the husband to sleep with a six-month-old girl for them to have kids.
So the wife went to her friend's house and took the infant on the pretext of looking after her and when she got home, she reportedly held the baby's legs for husband while he was raping her.

Alubankudi who said she has visited the baby in the hospital added that the suspect who is a very influential man has hired 10 lawyers to defend him in court.
The traumatized baby is being treated at a hospital in Kano after undergoing surgery as her parents are unable to hire any legal representative due to lack of funds.
Read what Alubankudi wrote:
"What a wicked world? Babalawo advised the husband to sleep with a six-month-old girl for them to have kids.
It was the evil wife that held the baby's legs for husband while the husband was raping the poor girl. I want to curse them but I'm too bitter. May God strike down any lawyer that represents that bastard. Also, the Babalawo must be arrested.
Thanks to Prince Kabir Bayero who has cleared the hospital bills and supplied baby's milk because the parents are poor. He has promised to support them financially.
Kano Governor pls take on this case."
