Musa was apprehended by police operatives attached to the Nasko Division following a tip-off.
It was learnt that the suspect on May 20, 2019, took his deceased child to an uncompleted building, where he allegedly strangled the infant while her mother was asleep.
Police investigation led to Musa’s arrest. It was learnt that the suspect confessed to the crime during interrogation.
It was gathered that the suspect, who impregnated the mother of his late daughter out of wedlock, was preparing for their wedding before the incident.
“How am I going to explain to my fiancé what transpired? I know that is the end of (preparations for) the marriage; she will never forgive me and my friends will desert me.”
The command’s spokesman, Muhammad Abubakar, confirmed the incident, saying the suspect had confessed to the crime.
Abubakar added that the suspect would be charged to court after the conclusion of investigation.
