It was a pathetic sight yesterday in Mile 2 Diobu, Port Harcourt as a one -day old male child was found dead at a refuse dump on the median of the popular Ikwerre road by Egede junction.
It was gathered that the mother of the child now at large had dumped the child last night and absconded leaving the child who had struggled for live to die later before any help could come.
An eye witness Chinemerem said he was about dumping refuse at the scene when he saw the dead child and drew the attention of neighbors
Secretary, Board of Trustees, Centre for Basic Right Protection and Accountability Campaign, Prince Wiro described the action as a clear violation of the right to life of the child
“The baby died for a fault that is hot of his, so we are very worried about the development” he said and disclosed that the recent case was the second of its kind after another decomposing child was found along Azikiwe street recently
