According to the Daily Times, The police in Abuja said they are yet to identify the male child, whose corpse was found stuffed in a suitcase.
The incident happened last Saturday and the police have arrested one Usman Inuwa, who was caught with the suitcase.
The suspect, said to be from Bwari, an Abuja satellite town, was arrested at Maitama when he attempted to travel with the suitcase.
Sources, however, said the incident happened at the Tipper garage, near Gwarimpa.
Passengers in the bus with the suspect raised suspicions when he vehemently refused to let go of the suitcase, following the bus conductor's insistence that the bag stay in the booth.
The passengers forcefully seized the suitcase and opened it and were shocked to find the lifeless body of a toddler in the suitcase.
The case was subsequently reported to the police.
Doris England, spokesperson for the Federal Capital Territory Police Command, confirmed the incident.
“He (Inuwa) has not mentioned any accomplices and other issues surrounding the dead child; the case is being investigated,” England said.
Also in the news, two corpses were recovered from Chinese company's swimming pool. The corpses of two young men have been recovered from the swimming pool of a Chinese-owned company in Lagos.
The deceased, whose bodies were recovered last week, have been identified by other factory workers as Imhonbhio Martins Odion from Ewohimi, Edo state and Richard Dada from Ugoja, Rivers State.
The deceased were said to be casual workers with the Chinese company located at Reverend Ogunbiyi Street, Ikeja.
The colleagues of the deceased also said that the two men slept over at the company last week, but nobody seemed to know how they died or got inside the pool.
Their corpses were recovered from the pool, with blood coming out of their ears, nostrils, and mouth.
Strangely, nobody has reported the disappearance of the victims to the police as all the nearest police stations denied receiving reports concerning the men.
