A cute baby boy abandoned by his mother has been found by the roadside in Akure, the Ondo state capital.
A Twitter user identified as Oluyemi Fasipe took the social media platform to make the disclosure, saying the baby was found on Akinjo street in Okeijebu.
He shared a photo of the baby and wrote:
"This little cutie was found abandoned on the roadside, the baby was found on Akinjo Street, Okeijebu in Akure. How can you give birth to a beautiful baby like this and throw her away? We live in a cruel world."
Oluyemi, however, gave an update that the baby is not a girl as he earlier claimed, saying he finally saw him and that he has been taken to the hospital.
"I finally saw the abandoned baby, a boy. He has been taken to the mother and child hospital in Akure for a medical test, the baby will be in the custody of a private orphanage in Akure. It feels good to know that he will be fine."
Nigerians took to the comment section of the post to react.
A Twitter user with the handle @hasani0072 said he wished he could adopt the baby because he and his wife have been childless since they got married.
"I just wish I can adopt this child for myself and my wife as we are presently looking seeking God's blessing for children. The mother of this child is so heartless. Wow."
"Very sad indeed. I remember while I was with the church in Akure helping at a children’s home 2 babies were rescued and taken in."
"I'm not sure the mother was far away from where the baby was picked up. Remember Moses in the Bible?
