The incident is said to have occurred Sunday along a roadside in Ugwuachara, an outskirts of Abakaliki. The child’s disturbing cry attracted sympathizers.

 The lunatic was said to have eaten all the food given to her by individuals without giving any to the baby boy. One of the sympathizers, Mr Sunday Ebe, said that the sympathizers had to take the child from the mother to prevent her from inflicting bodily harm on him.:

 “We later took the child to Reverend Father Abraham Nwali, the Ebonyi Governor’s Senior Special Adviser on Religion and Welfare Matters, at the Catholic Bishop’s Court Abakaliki. “The wailing of the child further attracted the sympathy of Reverend Sister Cecilia Chukwu, Executive Director of Succor and Development Initiative, Abakaliki.

 “She directed her assistant to give the child warm bath, food, clothing and other immediate needs,” he said.

 In a bid to avoid insinuations of child kidnapping,Nwali sort to know the status of the mother of the child and even went to the road side to see for himself where he met the mother sleeping

.He then directed a psychiatric nurse to wake her up and gave her food and water. After eating, the woman was taken to a hospital for treatment.
