A 17-year old Junior High School graduate identified as Maabena yesterday Monday dumped her newly born baby in an uncompleted building at Wassa Powako in the Amenfi East District in the Western Region.
It is suspected that the expectant mother took unapproved drugs, hence aborting the baby in its 8th month stage in the womb.
A Reporter in the area, Gabriel Bediako explained that some neighbours in the area who spotted the baby lying lifeless on the ground, raised alarm which attracted people to the scene.
‘Fortunately crawling insects did not feed on the baby’s body. The body has been buried,’ he said.
He added that to avoid the wrath of her strict father, Maabena and her boyfriend took the decision to terminate the baby.
‘The father of the girl did not approve of her daughter’s relationship with the boyfriend,’ he stated.
As at the time of filing this report, the matter was yet to be reported to the police.
