A resident who expressed her shock, said:
"This is very sad and shows that the heart of man is very wicked. How could a woman carry a child for nine-months and decided to throw the baby away when there are some women who can pay any amount to have the fruit of the womb?"
The baby has been handed over to the police who have in turn handed it over to an orphanage in the state.
