A commercial tricycle (Keke NAPEP) operator at Upper Iweka in Onitsha, Anambra State, Samuel Nwigwe, has said he found a three-month-old baby abandoned in his tricycle at the weekend.
Nwigwe said he had closed for the day and was relaxing at a bar near Chukwudi Motor Park when he found the baby.
He said the baby girl was placed at the back of the tricycle with a bag.
The Keke operator said he called the attention of those around to the abandoned baby.
An eyewitness and a reporter with a local newspaper, Emma Ihemeje, said he was drawn to the scene.
The reporter said he alerted the State Deputy Chairman of Nigerian Red Cross Society, Anambra State, Dr. Peter Emeka Katchy.
According to him, Katchy ordered that the baby be brought to the Red Cross Motherless Home in Ontisha.
The baby has been taken to the home. The Red Cross was reportedly looking for her mother.
Upper Iweka Onitsha was known as the centre of criminality in Onitsha.
But the Peter Obi administration has restored sanity to the area.
I still don't understand why a mother will carry a baby in her womb for 9months only to dump the baby after birth honestly there are different type of madness I am still trying to figure out a name for this type hisssss
