The incident reportedly occurred after the mother of the baby went out to urinate at about 6am. Upon her return, it was gathered that she couldn’t find the baby where she kept him. After three hours of searching around the house, the baby was found dead inside a water drum. The landlord of the house, Ali Abubakar, said he was observing his prayers when he heard shoutings and wailings.
Ali said he went downstairs and was told that Abdulaziz died inside a drum of water.

“It is difficult for that baby to open that drum and enter inside. We don’t know what happened yet but it is a mystery.”

A neighbor who gave her name as Blessing Akpo said it was only God that would unravel the baby’s killers. “I have never seen where a baby that is eight months old will open a drum of water, enter inside and close it.”
