A newborn baby girl that was dumped in a dustbin has been rescued by local security outfit in Rivers state.

He said his team found the child around 3am during routine patrol within the neighborhood.

He said, “At about 3am today while on routine patrol, I discovered a newborn baby. At the point of discovery, the baby was still wrapped with clothes and placenta.

“I rescued the child and immediately called a female nurse for urgent medical attention to be given to the baby. Upon inspection by the nurse, the baby was discovered to be a female.

“I called Prince Wiro, a human rights activist who immediately came to my office and went to the Nkpolu Police station to make a formal compliant.

“I want to use this medium to appeal to the Rivers State Government to prevail on the contractors in charge of Ikwerre road street lights to ensure the lights are always on at night as we have discovered that the street light are switched off some nights.”

Prince Wiro, the coordinator of Centre for Basic Rights Protection and Accountability Campaign, has condemned the action of the unknown mother who abandoned the baby.

He described the woman’s action as inhumane, callous and barbaric.
