Pastor Yaw Yeboah with the dumped baby girl

A BABY GIRL, believed to be two months old, was found dumped under a shed at Abuakwa near Kumasi in the Ashanti Region, on Friday around 10:00 pm.

Pastor Yaw Yeboah of Bible Believers Christian Church (BBCC), said he heard a baby wailing under the dark shed whilst he was heading home from church.

According to him, when he got closer to verify what was going on, he saw the baby wrapped in a white piece of cloth, lying under the structure, near Dr. Moro area.

He disclosed to DAILY GUIDE that a polythene bag which contained babies? clothes, was placed beside the wailing baby.

The man of God said he was shocked to see the baby, perhaps, dumped by her mother, at the obscure place at that odd hour.

The Pastor asserted that he moved straight to the Abuakwa Police Station where he lodged a complaint.

He said some policemen on duty accompanied him to where the baby was lying, adding that it was still crying uncontrollably during their arrival.

According to Pastor Yeboah, the police picked the baby to the station after which he (Pastor) was allowed to take care of it, temporarily.

He said he and his wife took care of the baby over the weekend and returned it to the police Monday morning.

He posited that the police ordered that the baby be sent to the Atwima Nwabiagya District Office of the Social Welfare Department.

According to the pastor, the baby was eventually taken to the Kumasi Children?s Home the same day by staffers of the Social Welfare Department.
