A statement signed by the Public Relations Officer of the state Police Command, DSP Wasiu Abiodun declared that the baby has been found.

"The case of abduction after being reported at our GRA station was immediately recorded and transferred to SCID Minna while Anti-Kidnapping Unit of the Command swung into action and commenced investigation with the aid of technical intelligence.

Fortunately today being 26/07/2023 at about 1230hrs, due to a sustained pressure and close monitoring, the baby was found abandoned at an erosion ditch, close to Gauraka Primary School at Gauraka area of Tafa LGA," the PPRO stated.

He said the baby was immediately taken to a nearby hospital for medical examination and confirmed to be in good health adding that he has been reunited with the family.
