LAGOS—The lifeless body of a two-month old baby girl, with her neck twisted, was found in a carton at a refuse dump located near Salvation Army Primary School, Sabo, Ikorodu, Lagos, yesterday.

The body was reportedly discovered at about 8a.m. by a man who went to the site to defecate. He raised the alarm.

Passers-by, especially women, rained curses on whoever could have killed and abandoned the baby.

They, thereafter, invited officials of the Ambulance Unit of the Ministry of Health.
When Vanguard visited the scene, the body was in a carton with diapers, a gown and an Ankara wrapper.
