When asked why he cut his daughter’s neck, he said, I just felt like doing it.

Mr. Suleiman Yahaya, the Adamawa state police command spokesperson, who confirmed the incident, say, Iya will be subjected to an investigation to determine the state of his mental state.

Zarau Seidu, the survivor,  has since been admitted at the Federal Medical Centre, Yola and she been treated by Mr. Elkanah Patrick, a Medical Doctor working in the Hospital.

However, Mr. Yerima Yusuf, a Medical Doctor, and the Head of Clinical Services said the girl will be treated by the hospital at no cost.
