Another abandoned baby has been discovered in Edo State where a wicked mother dumped it.
Residents of Akala Street in Benin City, the capital of Edo State, were thrown into a state of shock and surprise when they woke up to discover the decomposing body of a new born baby which had been dumped in a gutter in the area.
According to witnesses, the body of the baby was wrapped with cloth and dumped under a culvert on the street off the popular Airport Road in the city.
It was the offensive odour and flies that hung around the gutter that attracted the attention of the people who embarked on a search which led to the discovery.
The innocent baby’s mouth was tied with rope and its head wrapped in a polythene bag before it was dumped.
Just last month, a similar incident had occurred in the ancient town when a dead baby was discovered inside a ditch in another part of the town.
