On Thursday, June 2, 2022, residents of the busy Ayobo Road woke up to find the dead and dumped body of a newborn baby.
Our correspondent observed that the lifeless baby, whose gender could not be ascertained was wrapped with flannel and surrounded by dirt.
A passerby, who begged not to be mentioned revealed that the dead baby must have been dumped at night.
According to the passersby, “The baby must have been dumped by the mother in the dead of the night.
“As you can see, the baby is wrapped with an hospital flannel which meant the mother was newly discharged from the hospital.
“The newborn must have died of cold because the flannel which the mother used to wrap him/her got removed thereby exposing the baby to cold. She must have dumped the baby alive.
“It is so disheartening that a mother will carry a baby in her womb for nine months and then decide to kill such a baby. This barbaric act must be stopped.”
Meanwhile, the Deputy Divisional Police Officer of Ayobo, who refused to mention his name, maintained that his men had been drafted to the scene.
