Innocent Baby Rescued By NSCDC In Rivers

Operatives of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Rivers State Command, on Friday, rescued a two-month-old baby girl that was dumped in the rain by her unidentified mother.

The baby was saved during a heavy rain at about 9.20am at New Elelenwo Manifold in Akpajo, Eleme area of the state, by the men of NSCDC, who were on patrol within the area.

The baby, who was said to be in a critical condition as a result of her exposure to the rain, was rushed to the Welfare Department of the state NSCDC, where she was stabilised by a medical team.

It was gathered that the baby must have been dumped by her mother, who ostensibly was not able to take care of her.

Speaking with Southern City News on the development, the State Commandant, Mrs. Helen Amakiri, said that operatives of the corps had sighted a carton of Indomie noodles safely kept by the side of the road.

Amakiri pointed out that the operatives decided to stop out of curiosity and went to check the carton before they noticed that it was a baby that was safely kept inside it and dumped by the side of the road.

“It is a miracle that she is alive and healthy because when the baby was brought in, she was in a bad condition due to her exposure to the rain for a long time.

“We immediately rushed her to the Welfare Department of the NSCDC where a medical team was able to stabilise her,” the state NSCDC Commandant said.

The baby would be taken to the Social Welfare Department of the Ministry of Women Affairs for proper care, even as she advised young ladies to desist from such reckless lifestyles that could expose them to having babies with no father ready to take responsibility.
