“I was coming back from my farm when I heard the cries of a baby, so I traced the sound and to my greatest surprise, I saw a naked in a hole newly dug and covered with grasses.

I had to wrap the baby with a piece of cloth and carried her to the district head of the village."

The district head of Barwa village, Malam Ishaku Nana, also said:

“We took the baby to Iddo Divisional Police Station after cleaning and buying her new clothes.”
