“I was on my morning duty moving round to check every part of the school before handing over to the dayguard, when I heard the cry of a new born baby from the gate area and I was shocked.

“I started wondering who could have brought the baby to day care section at the early hours of the day.

“On getting to the gate, the baby’s cry became stronger and I saw the baby wrapped in a black small Ghana-must-go bag, dumped on the ground, he narrated."

Upon receipt of the report, the baby boy was well dressed and was left on the floor beside the school gate with some clothes wrapped as the baby’s head support.
