Woman abandons baby in Akure street

Akure—A day old baby girl was, yesterday, rescued by a security guard in Ayedun Street, Akure, Ondo State, who said he saw a young woman at the spot at about 4.30a.m., but didn’t know she was abandoning the baby.

He said: “I saw a woman there at about 4.30a.m., but thought she was only passing by. I did not know what she was doing there.”


A resident in the neighbourhood, Stella Alabi, said the cry of the newborn baby attracted passers-by, adding that the baby was naked when she was found.
