Baby Girl Poisoned because Father wanted a Male child

A 28-year-old man named Misbahu Salisu has been accused of fatally poisoning his one-day-old daughter due to his preference for a male child.

Residing in Doka Baici, Tofa Local Government Area, Salisu was apprehended by the Kano State Hisbah Board on Friday. This arrest was confirmed in a statement issued by the Deputy Commander General of Operations, Dr. Mujahid Aminudeen.

According to Aminudeen, the suspect informed board officials that he administered a local insecticide, Otapiapia, to the baby. Additionally, he drugged the baby’s mother, Sa’ade, with a cup of tea containing sleeping pills before committing the heinous act.

The official stated, “The suspect confessed to the crime, saying he preferred a male child but his wife gave birth to a female, which prompted him to end the baby’s life.”

The suspect has since been handed over to the police for further investigation and legal proceedings.
