”The fire service men mobilized and arrived the scene at about 10:54 am and discovered that a 25-year-old, mother, identified as Huawa Muhamed, who is mentally deranged suddenly dumped her newborn baby into a pit toilet.

“However, our firemen on arrival at the scene swung into action and successfully rescued the baby alive and subsequently handed her over to her grandfather, Abubakar Umar Usman of Sabon Titi quarters.”
