The corpse of a day-old baby boy with a placenta was discovered abandoned on a pile of trash in Calabar, the capital of Cross River State.
According to Eyewitnesses, the lifeless infant was dumped in the early hours of Saturday, November 5, 2022, along the Atimbo road, just a few meters from the Atimbo Navy Barrack.
A popular facebook page known as Cross River Watch, reported that four men buried the infant near a gutter in a little grave.
Cross-river watch revealed that the men claimed their bosses from the Ministry of Environment had given them the go-ahead to bury the infant, adding that they have been doing so on several occasions.
