A new mother reportedly dumped her newborn baby along a road in Daura town, Katsina state with a handwritten note begging with whoever finds the child to take care of her.
The baby, a girl, was found inside a carton at Unguwar Amare, an outskirt of Daura Town at around 1:20 AM on Friday, February 12.
Written in the note left with the newborn, the mother also begged whoever finds the child to name her “Barira”
She went on to express her regret over her action, claiming that she was deceived by an unnamed man who got her pregnant and dumped her after he promised to marry her.
According to one Yawale Musa Kallah Daura, the baby girl was first taken to the police station by the good samaritans who found her and later to the hospital.
The note reads: “ASSALAMU ALAIKUM. INI WANNAN BAIWAR ALLAH DA NA AJE WANNAN JARIRIYA BA DAN SAN RAINA BA ?ADDARA CE, WANI YA YAUDARE NI YA CE ZAI AURE NI YA MIN WANNAN CIKIN YA GUDU YA BARI NA HAIFETA SHI NE NA KAWO TA NA AJIYE TA ALLAH YA HA?A TA DA HANNU NA GARI AMIN, SUNANTA BARIRA ALLAH YA SHIRYI YAN BAYA KUMA ALLAH YA RAYA MANA ITA AMI”
