The mother of the boy who later agreed to speak to journalists said she wanted to kill the baby because the alleged father had denied the child was his own.

"I came to see one of my suitors in Kaduna from Taraba, though I don't know his name but I know his shop in Kasuwan Baici (a popular market in Kaduna known for selling second hand clothes) here in Kaduna.

''He got me pregnant but he denied the pregnancy and refused to take care of me and the baby. So, I want to kill the baby to save myself from shame", she said.
