Deputy Superintendent of Police, Franklin Addai, the James Town District Police Commander who disclosed this to The Spectator, said some members of a non-governmental organization, EPAWA, an anti-human trafficking group, spotted the nursing mother whose abode is the Agbogbloshie lorry park, giving the Dettol to the baby and quickly alerted the Agbogbloshie Police, who dispatched a team of officers to rescue the baby and had her rushed to the hospital.
