An unidentified mother has dumped her twins in a waste bin, after painfully giving birth to them in Calabar, Cross River State capital.
PARADISE NEWS gathered that the woman who is at large delivered the babies and dumped them in the waste dump on Thursday, July 16, 2020, at Mayne Avenue extension by Goldie Street, Calabar South local government area.
Eyewitnesses on Friday morning told PARADISE NEWS that they woke up to see the beautiful twins lying dead in the cold dump without even a pair of clothes.
“At about 7am this morning when I went to dispose my refuse, I saw people gathered at the waste bin – with some murmuring. When I moved closer, I saw a pair of between twins lying without clothes.
“When I checked further, I noticed that their umbilical cord is still intact, but there’s no life found in them.
“It’s such a pathetic act. I am a woman and I know the pains I went through while giving birth to my children. Why on earth will a woman pass through the pains of pregnancy, labour and then abandon the babies in such a cruel place to die? I am still wondering why.
May be it is these young girls that don’t keep their legs close. It is a pity and a cruel act”, a resident of the area who gave her name as Eka Divine told PARADISE NEWS.
Other eyewitnesses said as at dawn on Thursday, they never saw anything of such – until this (Friday) morning.
At the time of filing this report, the twins are still lying helplessly dead at the waste bin as residents have make efforts to call the Cross River State Waste Management Agency to come and dispose the babies.
