Police Arrest Kidnapper, Rescue Five-Month-Old Baby


Twenty-two-year old Suliyat Badmus has been arrested by operatives of the Lagos State Police Command for allegedly kidnapping a five-month-old baby in Lagos.

The state Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, on Wednesday said the mother of the child, Shukurat Opeoluwadu, had gone to hawk local herbs on September 26, 2018, when the suspect allegedly took advantage of her absence and fled with the baby.

He added that after a distress call, operatives of the anti-kidnapping unit of the command were mobilized and they eventually arrested the suspect, while the baby was rescued.

Imohimi said, “On that day, around 11am, the command received a complaint from one Shukurat Opeoluwadu, of Adeyiga Street, Odogunyan, Ikorodu, Lagos, that one Suliyat Badmus, who was brought to live with her, stole her five-month-old baby who she left in the care of one Oluwakemi Amosu.

“Based on the complaint, I activated the anti-kidnapping unit of the command to go after the suspect and rescue the baby. Investigation was instituted and eventually the suspect, Suliyat Badmus, was arrested on October 7, 2018, in the Sabo area of Ikorodu.

“The baby was rescued from her and has been reunited with her parents. The suspect has confessed to the crime. On the conclusion of the investigation, all persons involved in this dastardly act will surely be prosecuted.”

The suspect, Badmus, told Newsmen that she stole the baby because she could not conceive.

The Lagos State indigene said, “I am married, but I could not give birth. That was why I stole the baby.
