Worser things go down the radar, as no one sees them to report, but this particular one has been reported, as a man, Cornelius Ellah, who said he had sent his car for repairs at the said mechanic man’s workshop, got intrigued as to why a child as tender as that was at a mechanic workshop not attended to by the mother.

According to Cornelius Ellah, the situation got him to ask questions, and that was when he got the shock of his life that the child’s mother had left home–5 months ago.

Taking to his Facebook page to share the shock with his friends, Cornelius Ellahw wrote: “I took my car for servicing and saw what I consider as worthy of more urgent attention than my car.”

“When I got to the mechanic’s workshop located at Etta Agbor layout in Calabar, I noticed that one of the mechanics cuddled a very tender baby on his way to the workshop.”

“As soon as I saw that unusual sight, I felt that the baby’s mom or someone else would join him to either take the baby back home or nurse her while he attends to work.”

“But that wasn’t the case.”

Narrating further, the Facebook user said he returned after some time to see the baby was still there, with the mother not around to take care of the child, as he had thought.

Naturally, anyone would be concerned about such a development. It was not different for Cornelius, who engaged the mechanic in a conversation.
