Residents of Suame Maakro Police House have been thrown into a state of shock after discovering the lifeless body of a newly born baby wrapped in a rice sack.
A scavenger chanced on the baby when he went to gather refuse collected on the dumping site, and dragged it to shore in curiosity.
The content, which drew crowds to the place, was a dead baby wrapped in white bed sheets with a hospital drip syringe fastened to the arm of the baby.
A witness, Kobby Mensah, who narrated the scene to Pure FM’s Osei Kwadwo, revealed: “We heard the refuse collector shouting when he saw the lifeless body of the baby and we went there to witness the situation.”
According to him: “The refuse collector told us that he doesn’t know where exactly he picked the refuse which contains the lifeless body of the baby.
“He told us that, he went to one house to collect refuse but a certain lady told him not to touch her refuse but she directed him to go and collect the money in the house. Though he can’t say it was the lady who dumped the baby, he suspects her.”
Meanwhile, the landlord of the Police House took the lifeless body of the baby to the police station to formally lodge a complaint
The scavenger has been invited by Suame Police Command to assist in their investigations to unravel who they described as the heartless woman who dumped the baby in a dustbin.
