The mother abandoned her child few hours after giving birth.

The mother, Ayodeji Oluwatosin, a student of Crown Polytechnic, Odo Ado-Ekiti had attempted to have the baby in her hostel because the man that impregnated her abdicated his responsibility.

She had used fake names and address to check into the hospital.
 
According to the doctor in charge, she successfully gave birth to the baby and ran away some hours after the birth.

The baby boy is being taken good care of by the hospital.

The case has been reported to police for a thorough investigation.
