The Po­lice Com­mand in Ji­gawa has re­cov­ered an aban­doned new­born baby at the Eid pray­ing ground in Dutse.

SP Abdu Jin­jiri, the spokesman for the com­mand, said this while speak­ing with news­men in Dutse on Thurs­day.

“To this end, the po­lice swiftly took the baby to a hospital where it was ex­am­ined and con­firmed to be healthy be­fore hand­ing it over to the Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment So­cial Wel­fare Depart­ment,” Jin­jiri said.

Ac­cord­ing to him, ef­forts are be­ing made to ar­rest the mother of the baby, while an in­ves­ti­ga­tion is on­go­ing in the case.

Jin­jiri added that the state Com­mis­sioner of Po­lice, Mr Us­man Gomna, has urged res­i­dents to as­sist the po­lice with in­for­ma­tion that would lead to the ar­rest of the mother of the baby. (NAN)
