“We met the woman in the delivery process in the morning when we resumed our duties” some staff claimed.
They gave her a helping hand to deliver the cute baby girl weighing 3.2 kg.
The mother of the child was treated like a resident of the area as she has been seen times without number sleeping and waking up at the bus stand in front of ABS.
However, it could not be ascertained where exactly she hails from as she often became violent whenever she is approached, reports say.
A staff of ABS, Mrs Eucharia Nwachukwu who helped in the delivery process said she was alerted and immediately rushed to the bus stand only to discover that the lady had been put to bed with the help of some women but joined them to help her deliver the placenta.
The Chief Medical Director of Chukwuemeka Odimegwu Ojukwu Teaching Hospital, Amaku Awka, Dr. Josephat Akabuike explained that he received a call from a staff of ABS, alerting him of the development and he immediately detailed his nurses to the scene.
The medical personnel confirmed further that the new mother is presently in their custody but expressed worries over her stay in the hospital since no one knows her identity.
The lady in question who gave her name as Hope Eze claimed she hails from Cote d’Ivoire while her mother is from Imo state.
She claimed not to be aware that she was pregnant until she started having contractions.
Hope told ABS that she was lured by a woman who promised to take her abroad but she later discovered the said lady is a prostitute.
