The Commissioner of Police Lagos State, Hakeem Odumosu, has adopted a day-old baby rescued at Oladejo Street, Oko Oba Lagos on Monday.
Naija News reports that the baby was found by a good samaritan who informed the police operatives attached to Abattoir Division of the command.
It was gathered that the policemen quickly raced to the scene and picked up the baby for necessary medical attention and safety.
Receiving the baby in his Ikeja office on Tuesday, Odumosu ordered the Gender Unit of the command to hand over the baby to the Child Protection Unit of the Ministry of Youth and Social Development of Lagos State.
A statement by the spokesperson of the police command, Ademuyiwa Adejobi, said that the Commissioner of Police has expressed his intention to discuss with the Ministry of Youth and Social Development the processes of adopting the little boy as soon as possible.
The police boss, however, urged women, especially young ladies, to desist from abandoning their babies.
