Photo: Couple Abandon 4-Year Old Mentally Challenged Child In Hospital

A couple on Tuesday abandoned their four-year old child at
the Federal Medical Centre, Idi-Aba, Abeokuta, and fled.
The couple, in a note found on the child, claimed they were
no longer able to care for the child.
Witnesses said the couple came to the hospital in the
morning with the child under the pretext of coming for treatment. They then
headed straight to the physiotherapy department at the administrative block of
the hospital.

However, hours later, at about 12.20pm, hospital staff noticed
the child was without her parents.
A search in her pockets revealed a note stating that the
parents were unable to care for the mentally-challenged child.
The social welfare department of the hospital immediately
contacted the police authorities.
When contacted, the medical director of the hospital,
Oladapo Sotiloye, confirmed the incident.
He explained that the management had reported the case to
the police, while arrangements were ongoing to transfer the girl to the state
government-owned Stella Obasanjo Motherless Home.
