A pair were arrested by the Kaduna State Police Command for stealing a three-day-old infant.
A statement issued by the state police command spokesman, ASP Mohammed Jalige, said the state police command received a report on November 9 about the missing boy.
Upon receipt of the report, the command operatives swung into action immediately, gathered ample intelligence, and succeeded in arresting the suspects, namely, Kabiru Suleiman 30yrs (Husband), Aisha Musa 19yrs (Wife), and Salamatu Musa 27yrs, all residents of Abuja Road Rigasaa.
It is worth remembering that during the early stage of birth, the perpetrators began cultivating the evil plot by getting closer to the expectant mother under the guise of friendship and succeeded in whisking away the baby three days after delivery to an undisclosed destination.’
After an intense investigation, Jalige said the suspects were arrested on Thursday, November 26, at their hideout in Bauchi State’s Unguwan Baraya Jos Lane. He said the baby was safely rescued and turned back to his parents afterward.
“The offenders confessed to the crime upon investigation and will be charged to the court to face the repercussions of their action.” The statement read
