Pastor warns against dumping babies in toilets

By Emma Una

CALABAR—A female pastor has warned against the dangers of dumping newborn babies in pit toilets.

Pastor  Joy  Ilozobe of Christ for the World Mission, Calabar, Cross River State, who stated this in the light of frequent cases of child abandonment in the city, said that child abandonment  was morally,  spiritually and culturally wrong,  stressing that every mother should  in no circumstance dump her baby into a toilet, but should  rather  hand over  the baby to someone who cares or take the child to the church for adoption.

Pastor Ilozobe, who spoke  at the Calabar Orphanage, yesterday,   when her father, Dr Nick Eze, President of Christ for the World Mission, visited the place as part of his annual routine   to donate materials to  the home  to mark his birthday, noted that such acts were  inhuman and should be stopped.

“I have always accompanied my father to this place during his annual visit to widows and orphanages  to donate materials to them to mark his birthday and each time we come here,  the number of abandoned babies  keeps increasing  and we hear many die before they  are found and it  is very disheartening,” she said.
