A dog, in Gwallameji, the Federal Polytechnic Student Village, Bauchi State was found eating a new born baby abandoned at a refuse dump on Sunday. Narrating the sad incident to VANGUARD, an eye witness, who only gave his name as Isaiah, 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.”
Traditional Chief of Gwallameji, Hassan Ibrahim, also confirmed the incident to the press. He said,“I got a call from someone informing me of the incident but I told the person that I was not around. When I called the number back, I was told that Wakilin Sarkin Gwallameji (representative of the chief of Gwallameji), Sanusi Mohammed, was already there.
“Since he was there, I continued with what I was doing knowing that he would handle everything well. As I speak with you now, I haven’t met him yet for information on the incident.”
