A four-year-old child, who is battling with cerebral palsy [a disease which inhibits proper growth and movement of the body] has been abandoned at the Ifako-Ijaiye General Hospital, Lagos State.
This isn’t the first time the mother would try to dump the baby and abscond. Apparently, the same thing happened some time last year. The woman left the child with her.....
grandmother, identified as Nike Owoyeni, and fled.
Grandma Owoyeni took the baby to the hospital around December, 2014, where she was reportedly treated and discharged the same day.
However, the apple apparently doesn’t fall far from the tree as Owoyeni, after leaving the hospital, headed for the Ogba area of the state and dumped her granddaughter beside a parked truck. The child was said to have been seen by a resident, who took her back to the facility.
Since then, neither the child’s mother nor the grandmother had shown up since she was admitted about seven months ago. Efforts to reach Owoyeni, who claimed that she resided in the Alagbado area, had been futile as a phone number she gave at the hospital reportedly indicated ‘wrong number.’
Shear your thoughts....thanks!
