SANNIQUELLIE, Jan 14 (LINA) -An abandoned baby girl believed to be two months old has been found in Sanniquellie city, the provincial capital of Nimba County.
The baby was discovered lying on an empty rice bag about 800 meters from the Sanniquellie Central Market on Monday, 13 January, by a lady identified as Kou Deaymeh.
Madam Deaymeh later reported the baby to the Ministry of Gender local office in Nimba, where the ministry’s local Coordinator Yah Belleh took delivery of the baby.
Her office then informed the Liberian National Police Nimba Detachment, which has launched an investigation into the matter.
Coordinator Belleh said she will liaise with the Social Welfare Department of the Ministry of Health to secure the life of the baby while the police probe is underway.
Last month, another baby was abandoned in the streets of Ganta, the commercial capital of Nimba County, and is now being catered for by Superintendent Christina Dagadu.
