The infant was rescued in the afternoon of October 27, 2021, from a cassava farm at Agbaflome upon a timely distress call placed to the police by a community member.
Police upon arrival found the baby naked on a piece of cloth under a cassava tree crying helplessly. The baby has since been taken to the Akatsi Municipal Hospital for examination.
He is currently stable and in good health.
The police, however, are collaborating with all relevant stakeholders to locate the mother of the little boy to assist the investigation.
