Abandoned Nine-month -old Baby Found Crawling on Lagos Road

- Advertisment -
Residents of Shodipo Crescent in the Ikeja Government Reserved Area of Lagos State were shocked on Wednesday to find an abandoned baby boy crawling on the road.
Punch learnt that the nine-month-old baby, whose name had yet to be ascertained, was seen crawling by residents, who quickly alerted some policemen on patrol in the area.
It was gathered that the nine-month-old was believed to have crawled out of his parents’ apartment, although no resident in the area had showed up for the baby boy.
She said, “We found the boy on Shodipo Crescent in the Ikeja GRA. He is about nine months old. He was found crawling on the road. Some residents thereafter alerted some policemen on patrol.
A police source said that the child would remain in the police custody until his family showed up with concrete proofs of relationship.
“The police team rescued the baby. So far, nobody has come up to claim the baby. He must have left the custody of his parents or guardian and that is how some children fall into the hands of kidnappers and ritual killers. He is still with us at the command headquarters.”
It was gathered that the child was picked up by the policemen and brought to the Lagos State Police.
The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, confirmed the incident saying investigations were ongoing.
