JUST IN: Newborn baby found dead under bridge in Ibadan
A yet-to-be-identified newborn baby has been reportedly found dead in Ibadan, Oyo State.
According to The Punch, the child’s lifeless body was founder under the bridge at the Uncle Joe area in Mokola, wrapped with black polythene, on Wednesday, March 14, 2023.
There are speculations that the body might have been dropped on the spot early Wednesday before the arrival of passersby.
Security operatives are yet to confirm the sad development as of reporting time.
This incident comes barely a month after a teenage girl buried her newborn baby alive a few minutes after delivery in Uyo, Akwa Ibom state.
Bright who is living with her parents in a rented house inside the compound said did not know she was pregnant until the moment she gave birth.
“My body was paining me. All of a sudden, I now fell down here (pointing at the garden where she buried the baby), I saw a baby coming out of my body. I started crying,” she said, sobbing.
“The baby was dead. I was unconscious. I dug a small place to keep the baby until my mother comes back, so I can show her,” she added.
When asked if she didn’t take the baby inside the house and if she could sleep where the baby was buried, she responded, “I didn’t know what to do. I was in shock when I gave birth. There was no one to tell me what to do.”
In the garden where the baby was buried, there was a white piece of cloth stained with blood discarded at the edge of the tiny grave. Near it, there was a leaf from a plantain tree, which Bright had used to cover the baby while inside the grave.
Two people who witnessed the incident faulted Bright’s claim that the baby was already dead before she buried it.
A co-tenant in the compound, Matthew, said the baby was still alive before Bright buried it.
“The baby was crying,” he said.
Besides, Matthew said Bright dug the grave a previous day, not on the day she gave birth.
