A mentally challenged woman has given birth to a beautiful baby girl in Ebonyi on Friday, December 10.
A man by the name, Nwakpu Cosmas Aluma called on a human rights group, HURIDE who came to the rescue of the woman and her newborn.
Aluma said: “Met this baby delivered along the road by a mentally not stable woman, late evening today. Had the cord clamped and baby separated from the mother successfully with the help of people around. And it’s a baby girl,” Cosmas wrote.
“I quickly chatted Mr. Sampson Oko Nweke who responded immediately. Promised to come around for rescue. Thanks to people who gathered, donated and helped save the mother and the baby’s life. Both of them are in good condition.
“Before the filing of this report, the mother and the baby have been taken to the hospital for further evaluation and care. Thanks to Mr. Sampson and his team for the Swift response given. I will visit the hospital tomorrow to know how they are fairing. Glory be to God!What good he cannot do does not exist. I am Cosmas.”
The chairman of the HURIDE group also confirmed the incident and said the mother and child were currently receiving treatment at the Newborn Unit of the Alex Ekwueme Federal Teaching Hospital Abakaliki.
