Mrs Funmilayo Ijanusi, paternal grandmother to the baby , said the hospital officials claimed that a dog entered the facility, carting away the placenta.

She added that the hospital personnel also persuaded the family to let go of the matter.

Spokesperson of the state police command, Funmilayo Odunlami, said the case is still being investigated
