pThe Atebubu Police Command in the Atebubu-Amantin district of the Bono East Region, are investigating a case in which a baby was found in a public toilet in the community.
The baby was found on Friday dawn in the Atebubu English/Arabic school toilet by a securityman.
The Assembly Member for the Atebubu Zongo electoral area, Takiyudeen Issah, confirmed the development to Citi News.
He said, the baby, who was rescued by the securityman with
assistance from a teacher, was taken to the Atebubu Government Hospital for
treatment and care.
Mr Issah said “around 4.50am the security man said he was on his way to toilet and when he got there, he heard some strange noise inside the toilet”.
He said the securityman flashed
a torchlight and he saw a handbag inside, and he called the teacher and they
rescued the baby from the toilet”.
“The baby is currently at the Atebubu government hospital and the police are investigating the matter,” Mr Issah said.
Community members are yet to identify the person who dumped the baby in the toilet as some believe the incident occurred very late the previous evening.
