Man arrested for throwing four month old son into river in Niger state
Men of the Niger state Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) have arrested a 20-year-old man, Mustapha Aliyu, for throwing his four months old son into river Uti in Borgu local government area of the state.

When arrested, Mustapha who is an indigene of Kebbi state, said he acted in anger because the mother of the baby refused to take care of the baby and left the child in his custody. He blamed the devil for his action.
“I couldn’t take care of the baby alone. I was not happy that the mother left him with me. I do not even know what got into me. It is the devil handwork.” he told newsmen

The Niger State NSCDC Commandant, George Edem, said that the corpse of the baby is yet to be found
