He died in Wada village in Shiroro Local Government Area of Niger State after a brief malaria illness
Kolo said Buhari had a slight malaria which made his temperature to rise, adding that he died even after been administered with his prescribed drug.
Kolo said that baby Buhari had been slated to undergo a genital transplant in the United Kingdom before he died.
She said that the sickness was not a relapse on his health as he was doing extremely well after series of corrective surgeries carried out on him.
She expressed sadness over the death of the baby who is now over a year old.
She said that the state Governor, Alhaji Abubakar Sani Bello and his wife are devastated by the death of the baby as they thought of contributing their quota to making the life of the boy meaningful.
Recall on June 18, 2016, then, two months old Buhari Dauda genitals were cut off by his 17 year old stepmother, Bara’atu Rabiu, who gave no cogent reason for the act.
The state government moved in to savage the situation by working towards ensuring the baby grows up into adulthood with a functional manhood, moves which is now truncated with his demise.
Father of the boy, Muhammadu Dauda had married Bara’atu four months earlier when she carried out the act.
Bara’atu confessed that she took the infant from his mother’s room where he was sleeping, to the toilet where she chopped-off his penis with a kitchen knife.
“I decided to do that in retaliation to insults (I’ve been receiving) from his mother. She has been insulting me,” she explained.
“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”, she had said.
The DG said that moves are being made to ensure that justice is executed concerning the case as efforts are on to speedily charge the step mother, who is currently remanded in the Old Minna Prison, to court.
