The Lagos State Police Command has rescued a day old baby wrapped in a polythene bag and dumped in a dustbin.
This was disclosed in a tweet by the command’s Spokesman, Benjamin Hundeyin on his official twitter handle on Thursday evening.
According to Hundeyin, if not for the quick detection, the baby would have died.
He added that the baby is now doing fine and advised people to prevent pregnancy rather than killing the baby.
The police image maker noted that infanticide is a crime.
He wrote, “A day old baby was found wrapped in a polythene bag in a dustbin. Save for quick detection, baby would have died. Baby is doing fine. Prevent the pregnancy. It’s better than killing the baby. Infanticide is a crime!”
