A five-day-old baby has been trampled to death in a scramble for food items that were distributed to the less-privileged in Kebbi State by the wife of the President, Aisha Muhammadu Buhari under her Ramadan Food Bank programme.

The incident took place at the premises of the Ministry of Women Affairs during the distribution of the food item.

The mother of the baby, Aisha was carrying a 25kg bag of rice that had been given her group when some crowd that had gathered at the premises suddely rushed towards her, and in the process, the baby fell from her back and was immediately trampled to death.

A member of the group told our correspondent that, “as she made to carry the rice, people rushed towards her, she struggled to remove the food item and the baby fell down from her back in the process. And the baby was trampled upon. It was so sad the baby died immediately,” she said.

According to her, the baby boy was just five-day-old and was yet to be christened when the incident happened.

She said, “What is worrisome for the woman is that she did not tell her husband she was coming for the food items.

She had lied that she was going to visit her sick mother who was on admission in hospital.”

Mrs Aisha Buhari, who was represented by the wife of Kebbi State governor, Dr. Zainab Atiku Bagudu, was represented by Hajiya Fadima Muhammed Bunza , the wife of Bunza local government sole administrator.
