Commissioner of Police in Lagos Hakeem Odumosu has hinted he would be adopting an abandoned day-old baby boy who was rescued by the police on Monday.
Mr Odumosu said this in a statement released late Tuesday by Lagos police spokesman Olumuyiwa Adejobi.
The commissioner said the baby was found by a “Good Samaritan” at Oladejo Street in Oko-Oba, Lagos on Monday at 10:20p.m.
“The good citizen informed police operatives attached to Abattoir Division of the Command who quickly raced to the scene and picked up the baby for necessary medical attention and safety,” he said.
Odumosu said he received the baby in his office at Ikeja on Tuesday and has ordered the gender unit of the Command to hand over the baby to the child protection unit of the Ministry of Youth and Social Development of Lagos State.
“The unit is presently having the custody of the rescued baby.
“However, I have expressed my intention to discuss with the Ministry of Youth and Social Development on the processes of adopting the handsome looking boy as soon as possible,” the commissioner said.
Odumosu also urged young women to desist from abandoning their babies.
