A newborn baby dumped by an unidentified mother was found along a road in Daura town, Katsina State on February 12, 2021.
The child who is a girl was found inside a carton at Unuguwar Amare, an outskirt of Daura Town around 1:20 am with a note left where the mother pleaded with whoever finds the baby to name her ‘Barira’.
According to one Yawale Musa Kallah Daura, the note revealed that the mother had dumped the baby because she could not raise the child alone as the father of the child abandoned her and their child breaking his promise to marry her.
Yawale Musa indicated that the child was sent to the police station and later taken to the hospital.
The note reads:
“ASSALAMU ALAIKUM. INI WANNAN BAIWAR ALLAH DA NA AJE WANNAN JARIRIYA BA DAN SAN RAINA BA ?ADDARA CE, WANI YA YAUDARE NI YA CE ZAI AURE NI YA MIN WANNAN CIKIN YA GUDU YA BARI NA HAIFETA SHI NE NA KAWO TA NA AJIYE TA ALLAH YA HA?A TA DA HANNU NA GARI AMIN, SUNANTA BARIRA ALLAH YA SHIRYI YAN BAYA KUMA ALLAH YA RAYA MANA ITA AMI”
