"Sorry to post this. It was the 3 female police officers on shift that night at the station where I took this little angel to. They told me they couldn't do anything for her and that I should take her away. They were all mothers in their 40s. Thank God for the DPO, a Yoruba man whom I met the next morning, and he ordered one of the female officers to escort us to the different hospitals we went to for the next 3 days so they would see it as an emergency and attend to us as quick as possible. He even gave us his personal car and his driver for 2 days."
The latest photo of the girl shows that he has been successfully enrolled in a school.
