A newborn with his umbilical cord was found around Federal Polytechnic in Bida, Niger State.
According to Crusader Radio, the baby was found inside a sack in front of a mosque in the city. WikkiTimes gathered that residents discovered the sack in the late hour of Sunday. However, the owner of the baby is yet to be identified.
“Newly born baby girl found at the front of our mosque close to my house behind Maburr after Poly Junction Bida,” Idrees Danjuma, a Facebook user posted on his timeline.
Efforts to reach Danjuma for further information proved abortive. As of press time, a direct message sent to him had not been responded to.
Similarly, Wasiu Abiodun, spokesman for Niger State Police Command could not be reached for his comment. His official line was not reachable and he had not also responded to a text sent to him.
In January 2020, one Hajiya Fatima Adamu rescued a day-old baby girl dumped by an unidentified mother by the roadside along Kuta Road, opposite Central Mosque in Minna, Niger.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the baby was taken to the Niger State Child Rights Protection Agency’s office in Minna. The baby who was wrapped with a wrapper and dumped by the roadside was discovered by some children playing around the scene.
