Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Ruby Leo & Judd Leonard Okafor

A 10 month old baby who lost con­tact with her mother in last Mon­day bomb ex­plo­sion at a bus sta­tion in Nyanya is set to be re­united with her mother in hospi­tal.

Baby Good­ness was seper­ated from her mother, who was pre­sumed dead in Mon­day’s bomb­ing. She spent the day at Asokoro Hospi­tal with­out rel­a­tives.

Her mother, Glo­ria Adams, was later dis­cov­ered in in­ten­sive care unit (ICU) at the Wuse Gen­eral Hospi­tal and has since been vis­ited by fam­ily, Daily Trust learnt.

She suf­fered se­vere in­juries and is one of two left in ICU af­ter one other pa­tient died, hospi­tal sources said.

Glo­ria is among the 216 people now con­firmed in­jured in the blast.

“I can­not re­mem­ber [how I got here],” she told Daily Trust. “I only saw my­self on the ground, turn­ing and turn­ing. Then some­one came and re­moved the baby.”

Her baby, Good­ness, spent Tues­day morn­ing sleep­ing at Asokoro Hospi­tal while med­i­cal work­ers and her aun­tie, Maria Do­minic, watched.

The 10-month-old did not sus­tain any in­juries in the ex­plo­sion doc­tors said, apart from a slight swelling over one eye, which is be­ing mon­i­tored.

Plans were al­ready un­der­way to trans­fer the baby to Wuse to join her mother.

“I’m feel­ing bet­ter,” Glo­ria said. “Many have died, but I am alive. I give glory to God.”
