Muhammed who is of Sabon Pegi in Mayo-Belwa Local Government Area of southern Adamawa, allegedly conspired with one other man now at large to procure the abortion drug and to administer it on the girl, which has now caused her life.

Muhammed was arraigned for “criminal conspiracy and causing death by an act done with an intent to cause abortion which contravenes sections 60 and 204 of the penal code law.”

The court heard that after administering the drugs with an intention of killing the baby, Miss Sane Fidelis developed complications and then died at the Specialist Hospital in Yola.

The matter was earlier reported to the police in Mayo Belwa LGA by the deceased’s sister, Siyona Fidelis, earlier this month, November 4, following which the police arrested the accused person.
