The discovery of a fresh lifeless baby in the Subin river has got many people sad.
Traders of the Abinchi market could not believe their eyes when they spotted the lifeless body of a fresh baby girl wrapped in a polythene bag.
Scrap dealers discovered the strange object as they washed their scraps in the Subin drains and dragged it to shore in curiosity.
What was more striking was the fact that the dead baby had been wrapped in white bed sheets with a hospital drip syringe fastened to its arm.
An eyewitness Asare Boadi narrated that” I have a kiosk at the Abinchi market where they sell coconut. I was alarmed when I saw people running from that direction. So I got close and asked only to find out that someone had dropped a dead baby into the Subin River. The Dagombas who deal in scraps here saw the wrapped object when they stepped into the water to scoop up metal scraps.
“One of them brought up the object in his curiosity and unwrapped it. His screams drew the people to the place. I personally called the police to convey the body to the mortuary. The umbilical cord of the baby looks like that of a baby which had just been born probably a few hours after it was damped there.”
Meanwhile, the Central Police Command said it was yet to find out which of the police commands went for the body of the baby and which hospital’s Morgue the remains were deposited.
