Dutse—Operatives of Jigawa State Command of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, have apprehended three men for allegedly attempting to pull out the baby from the womb of an eight-month pregnant woman at Gusau quarters in Gumel Local Government.
The suspects, Adamu Usman Barma, 31; Fawas Bala, 28; and Buhari Ahmed, 29, were said to be the 20-year-old woman’s lovers.
State Commandant of the corps, Dr. Muhammed Gidado, said when his officers got to the scene of the incident, one of the suspects was holding the pregnant woman by the neck, another held her legs, while the third attempted to pull out the baby.
He said the lady, identified as Maryam Muhammed, currently on admission in an unnamed hospital, admitted that she had been having affairs with the three men.
The suspects confessed that the pregnancy belonged to them and they had told her to abort it, but that she refused.
