There was anger in Port Harcourt during the week when a newborn baby abandoned on the roadside in Port Harcourt died.
The baby was reportedly placed in a bag and dumped by the side of the road at Oilmill fly-over, just before Eleme junction in Rivers state.
A Facebook user, Enddie Cosmas, expressing her anger on the social networking site, slammed women who get pregnant only to dump the child after birth.
” Pls Ladies if you are not ready to mother a child, don’t get pregnant, you know how to do it don’t ask me. As we stepped out for our birthday paroll(me & my daughter) getting to oilmill fly-over before Eleme Junction, we saw people gathering. When I heard a voice saying “the baby was crying”, as a mother, I decided to stop by only for us to see this act of wickedness. Why not take the baby to the orphanage after nine months pregnancy. It pains me that I didn’t meet the baby alive I would have been the happiest person on earth today. The same child people are looking for is what a lady dumped on the road to die. An innocent child not given an opportunity to spend a day on earth. My prayers is that God should forgive the mother though she is this wicked.”
