The mother of the victim recounting the incident said her baby was kidnapped from their home in the d**d of the night and brutally raped.
She slept with her windows open to allow fresh air into her apartment. She woke up at night to see that her baby had been taken from the bed. She alerted neighbours who joined her to search for her baby who was found lying in an uncompleted building with evidence of rape.
The three-month-old baby was rushed to the Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH) where she received surgical treatment.
