A new baby has been rescued after being abandoned by her mother at a market in Delta state. According to reports, the mother simply identified as Edesiri, gave birth to the baby at the newly commissioned ultra modern market in Sapele area and abandoned her there to die. 

On Saturday night, vigilante men heard the baby's cry and traced her close to a female toilet after following trails of blood.

The security men notified their boss, Mr Tony Akpeki who arrived the scene and notified the authorities as they rushed the baby to the general hospital in Sapele by 12 midnight (on Saturday).

It was also revealed that the lady who delivered the baby (Edesiri) later collapsed in another hospital due to the forceful removal of the placenta.

The first lady of Delta state, Mrs Edith Okowa, head of child welfare, and the commissioner of Women affairs, have been called to help the abandoned child.
