An unknown woman has reportedly abandoned her child at a Catholic Church in Delta State.
The child believed to be around three years old was found at St. Joseph Catholic Church, Akumazi Umuocha in Ika North East Local Government Area of the state.
Speaking with Newsmen on Monday, July 19, the Priest in charge of the parish, Rev. Fr. Peter Nwakwu expressed shock over the action of the child’s mother, saying that children are gifts from God and must be well taken care of no matter the circumstances.
Rev. Nwakwu said he went for a meeting at Issele-Uku and was informed about the discovery when he returned. He immediately reported the incident to the Police in Umunede.
