Not satisfied, she rushed into the shop and discovered the lifeless body of her child while the culprits immediately zoomed off on a motorcycle. The Police were notified and the body was swiftly evacuated to Dalhatu Araf Specialist Hospital, Lafia where it was confirmed dead and subsequently deposited at the morgue for post-mortem examination.
