A 19-year old woman, Ayomide Adebayo has been arrested by the Lagos state policed command after allegedly dumping her two-month-old baby in a bush in Ikorodu area of Lagos state.
According to reports gathered, a secondary school leaver, Ayomide Adebayo was said to have been impregnated by one Martins Tewogbade, who lives in the Bariga area of the state
According to Punch Metro, Adebayo put to bed on April 30 in a neighborhood private hospital.  However, the birth of Ayomide’s baby never gladdens the heart of the Tewogbades as Martins’s parents failed to identify with the baby which led Ayomide to relocate with her child to a house in Igbode, a town in Ogun state and precisely in a friend’s place.
The church worker who is identified as Mrs. Joke Fatai had Adebayo’s daughter in her custody until June 10 when Adebayo came for her daughter.
An eyewitness said she tied the baby’s mouth and nose dumped her in the bush and returned to Bariga, all to start announcing that her child was dead
A vigilante group eventually found the baby during their patrol in a bush in Ikorodu It was learnt that the baby was found by some members of a vigilance group in the early hours of Sunday in a bush in Ikorodu, Lagos State, and was later returned
“Last year, the man observed that she was pregnant. After prodding her, she said it was Martins (Tewogbade), an apprentice, that impregnated her. But the boy’s parent did not accept the pregnancy, claiming that it belonged to a taxi driver, who they usually saw her with.
“She left the community after she gave birth in April and came back on Sunday, telling people that the baby was dead. It was when the woman (Fatai) and some people came on Monday with the baby that we discovered she was lying.”
The Coordinator, Child Protection Network, Mr. Toyin Okanlawon, said the case was reported to the police at the Bariga division, adding that the mother and Tewogbade had been transferred to the Gender Unit of the Lagos State Police Command’s Headquarters in Ikeja, Lagos.
He said, “The babysitter explained that she saw the mother back the baby carelessly and corrected her. She later came to meet the woman to help her take care of the baby. The woman took care of the baby and Ayomide till June 10 when she carried the baby to the Bush in Ikorodu. She tied her mouth and nose in an attempt to kill her, but the vigilantes saw the baby in the bush at night and rescued her.
