In an interview with Ika Weekly Newspaper on Monday, July 19, the parish priest, Rev. Fr. Peter Nwakwu, expressed shock at the child’s mother’s actions, saying that children are gifts from God and must be well cared for no matter what.

 

Rev. Nwakwu said, “I travelled to Issele-Uku for a meeting and was notified of the discovery when I returned.” I have reported the matter to the Umunede Police Department.

 

According to the cleric, he was assigned a police officer, and they transported the girl to Asaba, where she was given to an orphanage home.
