A fourteen-year-old child mother whose name was given as Ma-Sallay Koroma of Fonima, off Goderich Village in the west end of Freetown on Sunday 5th September 2010 abandoned her two months’ old baby in the veranda of her dwelling house and left for an unknown destination.

Neighbors say Ma-Sallay has been living alone in a single room , adding that  challenges in upkeeping the baby girl and herself became unbearable that caused her to abandon the innocent lass in the veranda to flee to an undisclosed destination. The poor baby was discovered the next morning by neighbours who alerted the police. The baby is currently under protective police care with neighbors desiring to foster it.
