There was outrage, yesterday, at Gwallameji, the Federal Polytechnic Student Village, Bauchi State, when a dog was found eating a new born baby abandoned at a refuse dump, Vanguard reports.
According to reports, several of such incidents have been recorded in the area with this coming less than four months after the lifeless body of a new born baby in a polythene bag was found at a refuse dump in the same area. .
Isaiah, an eyewitness, said: “I was coming back from church when I saw many people behind a house away from ours. I became curious and went to see what was happening there.
What I saw there was disgusting and annoying. It was someone, who dumped a new born baby at a refuse dump and a dog was found eating it (the baby). From the look of things and from what I heard people say, the baby was abandoned alive but was killed by the dog.
How can someone do this to an innocent child? How can a human life be treated with such levity? It’s so bad and inhumane.” Contacted on phone, the traditional Chief of Gwallameji, Hassan Ibrahim, confirmed the incident.
