A lady; IG user_motoke narrated this sad tale. According to her:
“People are desperately wicked. I wonder why someone will be pregnant for 9 good months and dump d baby. Tthings are tough; Oh yes we know, there’s recession everywhere;we understand.. I was raised by a single mum who struggled and did all sort of odd jobs just to get me where I am today.
Around 8:45am today, I heard my neighbor crying and I had to rush out to know what was wrong and d next thing she said was someone dumped a baby behind her window where my Aunt parked her car and we all rushed there, lo and behold; we saw this new born baby with blood stain on the ground and on the floor with his placenta still attached to his cord in his belly.”
“The baby was clothless and was placed on a stones. I mean who does that to a new born??? Even if d mother doesn’t want the baby; she can at least give birth to it and give it to someone who needs baby.. And there I watched “Iyawo” one of my neighbors shedding tears uncontrollably because she has been married for so many years without an issue, and I tried thinking of what will be going on in her mind at that moment.”
“Moments later, a woman removed her head gear and wrapped d baby properly with it.. And I keep wondering d millions of mosquitoes that would have fed on the new born’s blood, the insect bites, the starvation the baby might have gone through cos I know the mother can never have breastfed him. Thank God for The quick intervention of Ikosi ISheri LCDA, God bless the Midwives, Nurses and the First Aid staffs there. I am not writing dis for writing sake but I am writing this as a mother to be, pleasee whoever needs the baby should try and adopt him legally. He’s currently receiving treatment at Ikosi Isheri LCDA health centre, ketu Lagos state.”
