The administrator of Yambio State Hospital, John Sangara, said he received a report from the maternity section in the hospital that a certain woman came to the hospital alone in a labor pain without any card and only mentioned one name, Maka, when she was admitted.

Sangara however explained that after she delivered a baby boy at night on Wednesday she left the baby alone in the maternity ward and escaped from the hospital. She is nowhere to be seen and the staff of the hospital are shouldering the responsibility of breastfeeding and taking care of the abandoned baby.

It remains unclear as what prompted the lady to abandon her baby. She came to the hospital without the husband or any relative to help her. Eyewitnesses said she was crying when leaving the hospital.

The hospital administrator said they will continue to take care of the baby as the case has been reported to the police and to the directorate of gender, child and social welfare to intervene so that the necessary support could be offered to the newborn baby.
