According to him, the 2-day-old baby whose sex wasn’t known at the time of rescue was found dumped in a kiosk by the roadside last Sunday.
Witnesses told him that the baby was first sighted near Wema Bank Plc branch in Marina around 4pm before being moved to a kiosk in the area by an unknown individual.

The baby has been handed over to Lagos State Government.
