Abolore wrote, “My family friend delivered her baby by around 5 pm on May 27, 2017, and the mother-in-law was asked to go home to get clothes.

“When she returned with her son, they were informed by the nurses on the ground that the doctor and midwife had left the hospital immediately after her delivery.

“The nurses wouldn’t account for the whereabouts of the newborn baby. The husband raised an alarm and informed the community chairman and elders with the youth and they went to the Ifo Police Division to report the matter.

“They visited the place of delivery and only found the placenta and that one of the rooms was locked. The midwife was spoken with around 10 pm after several calls and she admitted the baby was fine and alive.

“The search team left the place around 11.30 pm after waiting for the midwife who didn’t show up. The next morning, on May 28, they went back to the police station and that was when I was contacted.
