Speaking to newsmen at the residence of the ward head of Railway whose wife nursed the baby, the resurfaced mother Asiya Muhammad who hails from Damaturu in Yobe state, said her action was as a result of the ongoing insurgency in her state which caused the disappearance of both her husband and her daughter.

Asiya, who is about twenty years old, further said the tension she found herself necessitated her decision to take the little boy to what she described as safe heaven to prevent him from falling victim to the Boko Haram attacks in her state.
