Dumped baby

While many women are praying and even willing to pay any amount to get a fruit of the womb, an heartless mother decided to dump hers at a refuse site near the Local Education Authority (LEA) Primary School at the Old Kutunku village in Gwagwalada area of Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory.

According to residents, the baby boy who could not be more than two months old, was dumped in the night of Sunday, June 5, and was found the following day by a woman who went to throw away her refuse.

The shocked woman ran to the village head who sent some elders to pick the child and was immediately handed over the social welfare department of the council.

A resident, Michael Ayuba, spoke on the strange find:

“The cry of the baby attracted the attention of the woman, who found him wrapped with a cloth at the refuse site. She ran back to inform the chief."
