Police in Palala, Bong County have launched a search for the mother of a three-month-old baby discovered unconscious in a rubber bush between Palala and Bala, in Bong County.
Oretha Nyangbaleh, a villager, narrates that she and some people were passing when they heard a baby sobbing in the bush, she immediately rushed there for help.
The baby in question is seeking medication at a clinic in Palala.
According to Oretha, the owner or mother of the baby was not around, but it is believed that she might have brought the baby from an unknown location.
The New Dawn correspondent, who visited the scene, observed signs of tussle where the baby was found, indicating that the mother may have been taken away to an unknown place far from the main road.
However, speaking to this paper, district health officer, Francis Kollie, confirmed that the baby is receiving medication at a clinic.
Residents of Bong County say they now live in fear due to increasing ritualistic activities in the county ahead of elections in October.
Few months ago, a five-year-old girl returning from school was held by unknown persons, who took off her uniform blouse and tied her mouth and feet in an unfinished building. The minor was subsequently released and taken to her parents. Editing by Jonathan Browne
