A resident in the area informed DAILY POST on how trouble started when the little Adama began to show strange signs.
”Her belly started swelling, she couldn’t eat, and we discovered serious wet from her private part. It was then, the grandmother took her to a medical facility in Kasuwan Magani to conduct a test on her,” the source said.
According to him, after several tests, it was confirmed that Adama’s swollen belly was due to excess sperm storage as damage had already been done to her private part.
The grandmother of the girl, it was learnt, immediately reported the case to Kasuwan Magani Police station and the Sarkin but no action was taken.
Angered by this, the grandmother reported the case to the Kaduna State Ministry of Women Affairs, Child Welfare Department who forwarded same to security agent for investigations.
