Day-old baby found dead in Ekiti river

The body of a day-old baby was Saturday morning discovered in a river along Ijogbo/Atikankan junction in Ado-Ekiti.

Residents and commuters plying the route all rushed to the scene to take a look at the dead baby.

Some residents and shop owners around the area rained curses on the mother of the baby for dumping such an innocent male child in the river after giving birth.

The baby was dumped along side the placenta.

Residents suspect that the baby must have been killed by the mother and dumped inside the river at night.

One of the residents, who refused to mention her name, said the baby must have been dumped into the river by a prostitute.

“Only a wicked woman, who lacks conscience will do such an act. The woman does not know the consequences of her action. In a situation where some women are crying to God to bless them with a child, another one gave birth to such a handsome baby boy and dumped him inside the river. What a sad situation”, one of the residents lamented.

The incident caused traffic gridlock along the busy Ijigbo/Irona market road as residents, drivers, and okada riders stopped at the scene.

Policemen later got to the place and took the body of the baby away‎.
