A newborn baby wrapped in a blanket was discovered in a gutter along IBB Way, close to Akim Police station, Calabar, the Cross River state capital.
Facebook user, Kegbor Bassey, who found the body on Wednesday morning, August 25, said she had earlier met a suspicious-looking woman carrying around a beautiful baby.
According to Kegbor, it was the same baby that she found dead in a gutter.
“God is never asleep. God is faithful, Merciful, and a prayer-answering God. But sometimes we feel God never answers our prayers when we pray. #NO, God answers our prayers. But our lifestyle, attitudes, behaviours and our evil thoughts sometimes stands as a blockage to answers to prayers
Not less than 24hrs I saw a lady who was carrying a beautiful baby that was just less than one week old around #ETA AGBOR ROUND ABOUT, CALABAR. Her moves were suspicious when I noticed her. And I wondered why she will be carrying such an infant baby around and be moving about. I watched her closely until she left my sight
But as humans, approaching people, showing concern sometimes leads u to another story. So we become too careful to avoid stories. Though I am regretting it today if only I have approached that lady when she was moving around my workplace, perhaps she needed attention. She needed someone to talk with. She needed help. But no one saw it coming so soon because we are being too careful.
To my greatest surprise this morning. On my way to work, just by Otop Abasi junction by akim police station where we have the big gutters. The baby was thrown there, lying down beautiful and lifeless
What a world we live in. A mother carried this child for 9mnths. If not for anything the pains during labour should have been considered. May the soul of this innocent child rest in peace. Amen. “
