A mother dumps her newborn baby with a note that says she was pregnant and abandoned by a man who promised her to marry.
The newborn baby was found on a street in Daura, Katsina state, with a handwritten note from her mother pleading with the person who found the baby to name her on the note and provide for her.
The girl was found in a cardboard box in Unguvar-Amar, a suburb of Daura, at about 1:20 am on Friday, February 12.
In a note left to the newborn, the mother also pleaded with anyone who found the baby to call her “Barira “
She also expressed regret for her act, stating that she was deceived by an unnamed man who became pregnant and abandoned her, promising to marry her.
According to Yavale Musa Kallah Daura, the girl was taken to the police station by the good Samaritans, who found her, and then to the hospital.
The note says: “ASSALAMU ALAYKUM. INI WANNAN BAIWAR ALLAH DA NA AJE WANNAN JARIRIYA BA DAN SAN RAINA BA? ADDARA SE, VANI I IMPACT NEITHER I SE ZAI AURE NI MIN WANNAN QIKING I GUDU I BARI NA HAIFETA SHI NOT NA KAVO TA NA AJIA TA HA?
