  1. Curse the mother who would abandoned such a child… She is a disgrace to motherhood… God will blessed and be with the baby

  2. Can we still blame government for this incident? Instead of taking the child to the motherless home and explain everything surrounding the issue to them and they will know what to do to it.

  3. This is precious gift of life that some people are looking for but you throw it away, this is pathetic. If they can look for the person who did this, it will be good.

  4. This is callous, why on Earth would someone behave like, you carried the baby for nine months and went through agony during the labour period yet she forgets all these and thrown the baby away. So bad of her.

  5. Some women can be stupid..o
    A child you carried in your stomach for nine good months, after giving birth to the baby, you throw the baby away, inside the gutter for that matter
    Had It been there was a heavy rainfall, the water would have Carried the baby

  6. I don’t know what is happening to this our generation,u know u are not ready to have child,why will u let that innocent baby suffer. After all now,she will say is porverty

  7. this re just the reasons y some of them will never have baby again because of what they did when they re young by then they will be asking God pls give me my own child forgetting what they did in past

  8. Nawa oh for some girls what an innocent child. God must expose the girl that dumped this baby inside gutter in Jesus Name Amen. When you know you are not capable why didn’t you play safe or even hold yourself and another thing here is the guy, maybe he denied this girl when she was pregnant. Its only God that will settle this matter.

  9. What a heartless….if you know you did not need the baby why did you burn the baby then? Baby that some people are looking for with millions of naira. The baby will grow up in good condition install Allah.

  10. God we punish the person that do this, for waiting now. The thing that some people are crying to God should give them, that was the same baby someone trowing to the gutter. God we not forgive you.
