Surprisingly, the following day, the said Sunday Imoh alleged that he put the child in a carton and dumped her beside the dustbin along the street. Up till now, no information on the whereabouts of the child is available. He has confessed and will be charged to court.”

Imoh during an interview with Southern City News, said that he left the child outside the house after the mother had left her with him. He claimed that the baby was crying over and over again so he took her outside with the hope that the mother would go and pick her up but to his utmost surprise he heard she was no where to be found.

It’s quite disturbing for one to throw their babies way in wild places instead of protecting them from harm. Anyone who does such should be properly examined as babies are gifts from God.

The case is been taken to court as the baby was not found at the supposed spot where the accused claimed to have dumped her.
