An abandoned baby boy has been found near the river at Giri community in Gwagwalada Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT)
The former Chairman of Gwagwalada Area Council, Hon. Abubakar Jibrin Giri who disclosed this to our correspondent in his residence at Giri yesterday, said already the abandoned child had been given to one Hadiza Ibrahim to take care of.
Giri also revealed that the Chief Imam of the area has named the child as Abdullahi.
When contacted, Hadiza Ibrahim said the child is a one-month-old now under her care.
She explained that Aisha who is now in JS 3 under her care was also abandoned at Giri village.
She, however, appealed to the management of Gwagwalada Area Council as well as the FCT Administration to help her financially for the upbringing of the abandoned baby under her care.
