Dear God! New born baby found in a road side gutter.

A day old abandoned baby boy has been rescued from a drainage channel on Holy Timothy Street Aboru, Agbado Oke – Odo, LCDA, Lagos. The baby was found in the gutter on Friday, 19 Sept, at about 5pm by a petty trader, Mrs Ronke Balogun a.k.a Iya Owo whose shop is almost directly opposite the drainage.

According to Iya Owo, "a male passer-by who heard the baby crying called my attention to the spot where I found the baby wrapped in a window blind."

She said that she took the baby to a nearby church, Holy Timothy K&S Church, Aboru situated about twenty metres to the spot and handed him over to a female church member, Prophetess Shola Adesanya who cleaned up the baby boy.

Prophetess Adesanya told PM News that the baby was brought into the church at about 5pm but said the baby was delivered at about mid day. The General Overseer of the church, Prophet Johnson Elijah, who facilitated the immediate procurement of all necessary baby needs, confirmed the incident but declined to speak further on the issue.

Meanwhile, the abandoned baby was taken to the juvenile section of Oke – Odo Police Division on Saturday.
