A mentally challenged woman who identified herself simply as Lara, has given birth to a baby boy in Odo-Ona Apata in Ido Local Government Area of Oyo State.
The woman, whose age is said to be between 25 and 30 years, delivered the baby in an uncompleted building at Ayileka street, behind Bova’s Petrol Station, Odo-Ona Apata around 3pm on Sunday, January 1, 2023.
A journalist who spoke with the woman said that she was not coherent in her speech, making it difficult for residents to get details of who is responsible for the pregnancy.
It was gathered that the incident had been reported at Odo Ona Apata Police Station, while the Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Welfare had also been contacted.
The mother and the child are doing well at a private hospital.
