An innocent newborn baby boy was abandoned by the supposed parents at a refuse dump in Okaka area of Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital.
When several residents stepped out to discard their trash in the morning, they discovered the baby wrapped in African fabric and sobbing hysterically.
The baby was suspected to have been placed there in the middle of the night by a local person in the community.
Shortly after being discovered, the little baby stopped wailing, and he was pronounced dead. It rained all night in the neighborhood where the abandoned newborn was found.
The spokesman for the State Police Command, Mr. Asinim Butswat, corroborated the news and maintained that the Divisional Police Officer in charge of the area had gone to the scene and had communicated with the sanitation authority to evacuate the baby’s body.
