The dastardly incident happened in Masaka, a community in Nasawara State, along One Road Junction, when the cries of the baby attracted some residents of the area and when some able bodied men plunged into the pit latrine, the infant was found covered in faeces.

Though the mother of the child is yet to be found, the residents expressed shock that a woman could carry a pregnancy for nine-months, only to give birth and dump the child.

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.
