A baby whose stepmother chopped off his penis when he was just two months old has died.
Dauda Buhari had been due to come from his home in Nigeria to the UK for genital transplant surgery.
However, he died in his village of Wada in Nigeria after contracting malaria, the Daily Post of Nigeria reported.
Dauda’s penis was sliced off by his then 17-year-old stepmother Bara’atu Rabiu in June 28.
She is currently being detained in jailed and has never revealed why she carried out the attack.
Mariam Kolo, the director general of Child’s Right Agency said Dauda had ‘slight malaria which made his temperature to rise and he died even after he had been administered his prescribed drugs’.
The baby had needed a number of corrective surgeries after the incident and was due to have treatment in Britain.
