was learnt that the girl had defecated on her bed following complains of upset stomach. The development angered Rahmatu, who descended on the victim, leaving her physical injuries, mainly on her face.

Confirming the incident, the Commissioner, MWASD, Hajiya Hafsat Baba, said the girl had been treated at Barau Dikko Specialist Hospital, Kaduna and now in safe custody pending when her father would come from Maiduguri, Borno State where they hail from.
