Occupants of Shodipo Estate, Agbara, Ogun state had their eyes on stalks Friday morning as they trooped to watch a sound and delightful infant young lady brought to life by a mentally disturbed Woman.
The rate appeared to be peculiar to some who were astounded that a wonderful sound infant was conceived by a mad person while others trusted it was just a wonder from God.
It was assembled from observers that she had professedly fled to Shodipo for asylum in the wake of having four of her children snatched by unidentified individuals.
Despite the fact that it is not known when or where she put to bed, a few inhabitants estimated that it must have been at midnight or early hours of Friday because of the condition of the lady and child.
In his record, Comrade Femi Okeowo, an occupant who saved the child from her mother said:
“I was on my way to school when I saw the mad woman with the baby. Some residents were scared of taking the baby from the mother but thank God for some men in the vicinity who intervened that the child be taken from her for the fear of being kidnapped.
“I asked her to hand over the baby to me that I wasn’t going to kidnap her and she did without hesitating. I collected the child and a female resident tidied her up,” he stated.
He however discarded the perspectives of onlookers that she could be pretending craziness. “Though she speaks coherently at times but merely observing her appearance, it is so glaring that she is insane. From my own point of view, she is abnormal because her hair is very unkept. It is the work of God and it is mysterious as well for a mad woman to trek all the way from Lome and give birth in Agbara in Ogun state”, he said.
Another inhabitant, Mrs Achibong portrayed the go about as ‘brilliant’. “It is just God that can do this, that is the reason I call her “Endowment of God”. The mother said it is just me that can give her a name, so i gave her the name: Gift of God,” she said.
“We dont really know where she put to bed yet she said she cut the placenta on some way or another down and discarded it.”
Then again, a few observers accept that the vicinity of the frantic lady in the area will convey good fortunes to traders.
As at press time, the lady and her child were taken away by a Rescue Operation group from Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos state.
