A baby suspected to be a day old has been found dead at a market in Ndiakwu Otolo Nnewi community in Nnewi North LGA of Anambra state.
President General of Ndiakwu Otolo Nnewi, Mr. Izuchukwu Nwanokwu, who confirmed, lamented and described the situation as unfortunate, said the baby was discovered in the early hours of Friday.
He wondered why nature still allows people who have no human feeling to walk freely on earth.
On their part, security men on night duty at the market said that they did not notice anyone in the act, suspecting that the baby could have been dropped at the early hours of the morning.
Some indigenes of Ndiakwu Otolo Nnewi community who spoke anonymously wondered why anyone in his or her right sense would commit such atrocity when many are still looking for babies.
They suspected that someone from outside the community must have dropped the dead baby, as according to them, Ndiakwu community as a whole values human life.
