The baby, whose manhood was chopped off by his step mother in Niger State, Dauda Buhari, is dead.
The Director General of Child’s Right Agency, Mariam Kolo, disclosed that Buhari died in Wada village in Shiroro Local Government Area of the state, after a brief malaria illness.
Speaking with Punch, on Wednesday, Kolo said Buhari had “slight malaria which made his temperature to rise and he died even after he had been administered his prescribed drugs.”
Kolo revealed that Buhari died at a time he was scheduled to undergo a genital transplant in the United Kingdom, UK.
The DG said the sickness was not a relapse on his health, as he was doing extremely well after a series of corrective surgeries.
Expressing sadness over the death of the baby who is now over a year old, Kolo said the case of the stepmother who is currently being remanded in the Old Minna Prison would be determined.
Recall that Buhari’s step mother, Bara’atu Rabiu, had on June 18, 2016, chopped off the toddler’s penis while he was just two-month old.
Rabiu, then 17-years-old, never gave any reason for her action.
