Monthly sanitation: Corpse of baby boy dumped inside dustbin in Bayelsa..
It was tears, wailing and curses on Saturday morning when a newborn baby boy was found dead at a public dustbin in Okaka community, Yenagoa, the Bayelsa state capital
Daily Post gathered that the abandoned corpse of the baby was discovered by residents of the area who came out early to dump refuse collected from their homes during the monthly sanitation in the state.
At the time of visit, women were seen laying curses on the unknown mother of the deceased boy.
According to a mother, madam Jane Lagos, “It will not be well with this woman who abandoned this innocent child here to suffer and die under the cold of the night,” I was at home this morning when I heard people talking about the ugly incident, so I immediately ran down to witness it, behold I saw the baby.
As a mother, it is devastating for a woman to carry a baby in her womb and after 9 months of the pains of labour, abandoned the child this way to die. We are talking about the life of a human being here ; this is painful for a woman to do this.”
The President of Yenagoa Federated Youth council, Mr. Ineife Perekosifa, attributed the cause of incident to poor parenting and lack of care by guardians.
