Police operatives have arrested a female student of Gombe State University (GSU) for allegedly throwing a day-old baby from a three-storey building.
It was gathered that the unfortunate incident occurred at the girls’ hostel on Saturday morning, September 9, 2023.
According to reports, the yet-to-be-identified student decided to end it all for the child immediately after she put to birth.
The baby was found near Hall IV of the female hostels by passerby who raised the alarm only to discover that the baby was already dead as a result of an injury sustained in the right leg.
An eyewitness told newsmen that the mother of the baby has been hiding the pregnancy in her hijab gown for months to prevent her from being noticed.
