Abandoned baby retrieved from 10-ft pit latrine

By on

The Police and people of Sibi in the Nkwanta-North District in the Volta Region have mounted a search for a mother who dumped her newborn baby in a pit latrine shortly after delivery.

The runaway mother is alleged to have dropped the baby girl inside a 10-feet abandoned latrine at Sibi Central Basic school with the intention of killing it.

However, God’s favour located the baby as a good Samaritan heard its cries from inside the pit latrine and drew people’s attention to it.

The timely intervention of the passerby and other members of the community saved the child from dying.

The Assembly member of the Sibi Central Electoral Area, Mr Emmanuel Triko,,who confirmed the sad story to Graphic Online, said the baby was being cared for by a nursing mother.

“It all happened on Sunday dawn (21-10-2018)at sibi central when the unknown person delivered on a path leading to the sibi central primary school compound and then carried the baby to the abandoned school KVIP and dropped it into the pit with the intention that there is faeces in the pit to facilitate the death of the innocent baby,” Mr Triko said.

“But God being so good, there are no faeces and miraculously, the baby fell in about 10-feet pit with the face facing the sky.

“A good Samaritan was going to attend the nature’s call when he heard a baby crying. He drew closer to toilet building only to realise the baby was lying in the toilet pit.

“All efforts to find the culprit so far proved futile,” he explained.

He added that the case was reported to the Damanko police who visited the baby and were now searching for the mother.

Mr Triko said the baby was also sent to the Sibi central clinic for checkup and medical advice.
