The Anambra State Government through the Ministry of Women and Social Welfare, has announced the death of the newborn baby boy rescued from a pit toilet in Otuocha, Anambra East Local Government Area of the State.

Nigerian Tribune had earlier reported that the mother of the child, Nwaedoka Chidimma, 20, from Izzi, Ebonyi State, was alleged to have deliberately thrown the baby into a pit.

After it was reported to the relevant authorities, Anambra State’s Commissioner for Women and Social Welfare, Ify Obinabo, directed that the newborn be taken to Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu Teaching Hospital, Amaku, in Awka, for treatment.

It was gathered that all efforts to resuscitate the baby, including the administration of oxygen and fluids with cardiopulmonary resuscitation, could not save the baby.

A post on a Facebook page linked to the commissioner reads: “It is with sadness that we wish to inform the general public that we lost the newborn rescued from pit toilet in Otuocha few hours ago despite all efforts to resuscitate the baby, including administration of oxygen and fluids, with cardiopulmonary resuscitation by the Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu Teaching Hospital Amaku Awka. May his soul rest in peace.”
