January 30, 2018 – Newborn Baby Abandoned By Father After Teenage Mother Dumped Her And Ran Away Rescued

Two teenage lovers who allegedly dumped their three-week-old baby girl by the roadside were yesterday brought before an Upper Area Court 3 in Jos.

15-year-old Zainab Yakubu, was arraigned with her boyfriend, Abdullahi Ismail, the suspected father of the abandoned child.

The accused pleaded not guilty to the offence punishable under Sections 97 and 237 of the Penal Code.

Prosecuting Sergeant Ahmed Labaran told the court that the case was reported to Angwan Rogo Police Station by one Abdulkarim Danbadawai of Angwan Rogo on January 19.

According to him, the abandoned baby was recovered and brought to the station by Danbadawai.

The prosecutor alleged that the accused met twice in a hotel at Chobe Junction in Jos after which she became pregnant.

“The accused’s mother was ashamed of her daughter’s act of indecency and begged her to go to Abuja and stay with a relation until when she delivers,’’ Labaran said.

He said that after Zainab gave birth to the baby, she brought the child to Jos three weeks later to look for the father.

Labaran said that on meeting the father, Zainab gave him his child and ran away. The father also dumped the baby instantly and ran away.

“The poor baby girl was left alone crying before she was picked and brought to the station,’’ Labaran said.

The Judge, Yahaya Mohammed, ordered the ward head in the area, whose wife just gave birth, to keep the baby under his custody for nursing.

Mohammed adjourned the case till the 16th of February.

    They are too young to face task of raising a child but at the same time the girl’s mother or the boy’s mother should have taking charge of raising the child for them if they have the means. They need counseling.

    @fifelomo you don nail am.i agre with you. They should have learnt to run from adult games and not just run from the consequences after bringing an innocent child to the world. Hope other youths learn from these peoples’ predicament.
