The corpse of a day-old baby was abandoned beside Ayinke house, Ikeja, Lagos, weekend by an unknown person.

This occurred barely six days after another day-old abandoned baby was rescued by policemen at Oladejo Street, Oko Oba area of Lagos.

Information had it that the baby beside Ayike house could have been dropped there by his unknown mother, apparently for medical reasons.

However, when policemen at the Ikeja division who were contacted by the security department of the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, arrived at the scene, the baby was reportedly found dead.

A spokesman for the Lagos State Police Command, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said the policemen contacted the State Environmental Health Monitoring Unit that later evacuated the corpse.

He said, “ The baby was suspected to have been abandoned by his mother and must have been exposed to risks that caused his death”.

He also informed that the Commissioner of Police, CP Hakeem Odumosu, had expressed his intention to discuss with the Ministry of Youth and Social Development on processes of adopting the baby that was earlier rescued.
