Dauda who was nine-month old barely a year ago when he suffered the heinous attack at the hands of Bara’atu died in Shiroro Local Government Area of the state after a brief malaria illness.

Report said the toddler had malaria fever and was receiving treatment when he died.

Earlier this year he underwent the first corrective surgery on his penis.

The step-mother from hell shockingly took revenge on her rival by chopping off her 23-day old baby boy’s genital with a kitchen knife at Dafe Village in Shiroro local government area of Niger State where the family live.

“I decided to do that in retaliation to insults from his mother(Dauda’s mum). She has been insulting me. Anytime I complained to our husband, he will not take action. That was the major reason I used our kitchen knife to cut off his penis,” Bara’atu, who was 17 at the time of her vicious assault on her stepson said in defence of her action.
