A middle-aged woman was on Wednesday, caught at the scene where she was about disposing her infant child inside a drainage system in Lagos.
Naija News understands that the incident happened around the Iyana Ipaja axis of Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial city.
The action of the yet-to-be-identified but middle-aged woman left the people in the area wondering what could have been the cause of her inhuman action.

Although the sex of the child was not discovered as at the time of this report, Naija News understands that the baby who almost got disposed by her mother is less than a four-months-old.
The woman and her child had since been taken to the Ile Epo police station in the Iyana-Ipajja area of the state.
