An 18-year-old mother who had attempted to abandon her baby under a bridge in Lagos has explained what led to her 'wicked' decision.
The lady who gave her name as Timilehin Adeshina was caught dumping her 4-month-old baby under the Oshodi bridge in Lagos.
NAIJ.com gathered that the baby had been left naked and packed inside a bag, and left by the mother, who was later caught by some Lagos state Task Force operatives.
Explaining why she dumped her baby, Timilehin who dropped out of secondary school at JSS2, said: “My mother sent me out because I could not identify the man who impregnated me. I had sex with different men.”
She also said she has been sleeping with different men who give her money, just to make ends meet, since her father died nine years ago.
Timilehin has since been transferred to the social welfare department of the Lagos state Ministry of Youths and Social Development (MYSD).
NAIJ.com had earlier reported the case of an unidentified woman who dumped her day-old baby at a refuse site at Gwagwa community in Abuja, federal capital.
Similarly, a policewoman saved the life of the baby by kindness. The girl was just one-month-old when her parents left her alone and locked up in a dirty apartment.
