The murder of an 18-month-old baby in Plateau state has began.
The Plateau State Police Command on Friday said the baby who was killed by unknown persons was found on September 15.
The Public Relations Officer of the Police Command in the state, ASP Gabriel Ubah, said the command had received a petition addressed to the Police Commissioner on the alleged murder.
“The baby (name withheld), was allegedly murdered by unknown persons who ripped her tummy open and left her laying down in the Rock Haven residence of her parents in Jos North Local Government Area of Plateau in the evening of Sept. 15.
The maternal grandfather of the baby, Chief Jerry Egede, petitioned the Plateau Commissioner of Police, urging him to unravel the circumstances that led to the alleged murder.
Egede who said that a foul play was being suspected vowed that no stone would be left unturned in unravelling the perpetrators of the heinous act.
