NAPTIP operatives were quick to render help to the victim, Fatima who looked really pale and sick. The Operatives rushed her to a private hospital in Kano, where she is presently receiving proper medical treatment.
According to Daily Nigerian, one of Muhammad’s sons who ran away from home due to his father’s punishments, confirmed that Shehu, his sibling died of starvation while in captivity of their father.
