A newborn baby girl has been rescued by men of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corp in a graveyard in Jigawa State, Nigeria.

The baby is suspected to have been dumped and abandoned in the cemetery by her mother yesterday.

According to reports, the NSCDC Commandant in the state, Muhammad Gidado,  stated that the baby was discovered at Shagari cemetery in Kazaure Local Government Area.

Gidado added that the baby was discovered at about 2:27am by officers of the command while on patrol. He said the personnel were attracted to the scene by the cries of the baby.

The baby was packed in a carton, dressed in vest and covered with wrapper.The commandant stated that the abandoned baby had been taken to Kazaure General Hospital for medical attention.

Gidado said that no arrest had been made but that investigation had commenced into the case.

The heart of man is truly. I still crack my brains to understand the rationale behind this dastardly act. Why suffer pregnancy pangs for 9 months only to abandon the baby after it is safely born? Sad!
