The Lagos State Police Command says it has rescued another one-month old female child that was abandoned at the junction of Odun-Ade Filling Station by Orile Bus Stop, Lagos.
This is coming less than two months after the police rescued a baby boy abandoned at Oladejo Street, Oko Oba, Lagos.
According to the state Police Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the baby was rescued on Friday.
He said the baby was sighted by some passers-by who alerted the police operatives attached to Orile Division of the command before she was rescued and handed over to the Gender Unit of the command at Ikeja.
Adejobi added that the baby was taken to the office of the state Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu by the Officer in charge of the Gender Unit where Odumosu directed that the baby be accorded proper medical attention and taken to a government accredited shelter for custody and proper care.
The CP reassured the general public that the command “will continue to work with all relevant government agencies and interest groups in fighting against this inhuman act and other social vices in Lagos State.”
