Katsina - A family of five has been arrested for allegedly feeding a day-old baby boy to a dog as meal.
The incident happened at Saika village in Batsari Local Government Area according to Punch.
The suspects include 15-year-old Wosila Halilu, her three stepbrothers and her mother.
Wosila, who is the mother of the baby, got pregnant after she was raped by a 27 year-old farmer, Musa Garba.
The family was said to have viewed the pregnancy and subsequent delivery of the baby as shameful, since she was not married.
A meeting was held where a decision was reached where it was alleged that Wosila’s mother and her step brothers decided that the baby should be fed to a dog.
