A nine-month-old baby was found crawling at Shodipo Crescent in Ikeja GRA, on Wednesday, September 9, 2016, by residents in the area.

According to Punch, officers at the Lagos police command were contacted and they took the baby to the hospital for a check-up.

A police source also said “We found the boy on Shodipo Crescent in the Ikeja GRA. He is about nine months old. He was found crawling on the road. Some residents thereafter alerted some policemen on patrol.

“The police team rescued the baby. So far, nobody has come up to claim the baby. He must have left the custody of his parents or guardian and that is how some children fall into the hands of kidnappers and ritual killers. He is still with us at the command headquarters.”

An 11-month-old baby was abducted and raped for two hours at a police housing complex in Delhi, India.
