By; BAYO AKAMO, Ibadan

Chairperson of Nigeria Association of women Journalists ( NAWOJ) Imo State Chapter, Dr. Dorothy Nnaji at the weekend, said that  the two months old baby whose right hand was recently amputated, baby Miracle is alive, hale and healthy.

The Imo State NAWOJ Chairperson in a statement, dismissed what she called an untruthful story making waves on the Social Media about the demise of baby Miracle, describing it  as, “ungodly and a conspiracy  from pit of hell.”

Dr. Nnaji in the statement, said that on hearing about the rumours, she  “had to rush to the hospital to ascertain  how truthful  the story  was. Upon getting  to the hospital,  she found out  that both baby and mother  are in good condition  of health”.

Describing the Information  as a hoax, Dr Nnaji called on all good people of Imo State to disregard  such devilish, unfounded and inhuman actions and Information  as false.

The Imo State NAWOJ Chairperson while expressing disappointment  and dissatisfaction that someone  would contemplate  such thought  to befall   innocent and harmless  Miracle, as if what the little baby is  going through  is not enough  torment, called on good spirited people  to continue  to pray for the soonest recovery of baby Miracle to enable him to be discharged from hospital as she called for support  for the family.

New Nigerian recalls that the lmo State NAWOJ,  National Human Rights Commission Imo State and other CSOs in the state recently called on the State Government and Commissioner of Police in the state to arrest a 31 years old man, Mr Confidence Amatobi  for assaulting his two months old baby named Miracle, which  led to the amputation of his right arm from the shoulder.

Imo State NAWOJ Chairperson, Dr Dorothy Nnaji who on behalf  of the ssociation visited the baby at Federal Medical Center Owerri, frowned at the act, describing it as beastly  and wondered  how  a father could assault his child in this manner, a harmless  two months old baby because he was crying while he repeatedly hit the baby with a plastic hanger to stop him from crying.
