Residents have rescued an abandoned newborn baby in Yola town, Adamawa state.
It was gathered that the baby girl was found dumped inside a drainage by the roadside at Kofar Bayi district of Yola in the early hours of Wednesday, December 6, 2023.
One of the residents, Shitu Abdulqadir Yola, said the case has been reported to the nearest police station.
“I was asleep today few hours ago in the morning, I heard the scream and noises of people entering our family house at SHEHU STREET YOLA TOWN, then I heard the voice of my Grandma saying SUBHANALLAH! What a cruel world are we living in,” he wrote.
“It’s a baby girl child they found dropped inside a mini drainage around our house. The child was picked up and entered our house and bathed by our Grandma,”
“I then came out from my room saw a lot of people and crowd within our compound premises. I advised them the wrapper that the child was found inside to be kept and immediately to report the issue to near-by police station which eventually they did.
“The picture below the post was the baby child dropped. Is this how a lot of our people within our society become heartless everyday. If you can’t nurture and hold the baby why giving birth to her.”
