JUST IN: Man Who Wanted A Son Poisons Day-Old Daughter To Death 

A 28-year-old man, Misbahu Salisu, has allegedly poisoned his day-old baby girl to death because he prefers a male child.

The man, a resident of Doka Baici, Tofa Local Government Area of Kano State, was on Friday arrested by the Kano State Hisbah Board.

The suspect told board officials that he gave the day-old baby a local insecticide, according to a statement made by the Deputy Commander General, Operations, Dr Mujahid Aminudeen.

Before allegedly committing the crime, the suspect is also accused of giving the baby’s mother, Sa’ade, a cup of tea laced with sleeping pills.

“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 statement said.

He has been handed over to the police for further investigation and prosecution.
