A photo showing the face of a young mother who abandoned her baby in a toilet stall at a market in Delta State after giving birth has been released.
The mother simply identified as Edesiri gave birth to the baby at the newly commissioned ultra modern market in Sapele area and abandoned her there.
The child was rescued after vigilante men in the area heard the baby’s cry on Saturday night and followed the sound of the voice as well as traces of blood which eventually led them to a female toilet in the market.
The baby was taken to the hospital where she was cleaned up, fed, and treated. The mother was later discovered to have passed out in another hospital due to forceful removal of the placenta.
