At St. Joseph Catholic Church, Akumazi Umuocha in Delta State’s Ika North East Local Government Area, a young girl of over two years has been abandoned by an unidentified woman.
The Priest in Charge of the Parish, Reverend Fr. Peter Nwakwu, expressed amazement at the child’s mother’s actions, saying that children are gifts from God and must be cared for no matter what.
The Priest further said that he went for a meeting at Issele-Uku, a town in Delta State and was informed about the discovery when he returned. He immediately reported the incident to the Police in Umunede.
Rev. Peter explained that a Police Officer was assigned to accompany him take the child to Asaba, where she was handed over to an orphanage home.
