Man Steals 7-Month-Old Baby (Photos)


Operatives of the Gender Department of Lagos State Police
Command are currently investigating a 26-year-old man for allegedly kidnapping
a seven months old baby.

Vanguard learned that the suspect, identified as Happiness
Umaru, was intercepted at Eric Moore in Surulere by policemen attached to the
Rapid Response Squad, RRS, at about 10p.m. on March 16.  It was gathered that during interrogation
Umaru initially claimed to be the biological father of the baby.
He later confessed that he found the baby around Ijora
Railway, when he went into a bush to answer the call of nature.
After the case was transferred to the Gender Department for
further investigation, officers from the unit visited the scene of the
incident, where they located the biological mother of the baby.
Mother’s account;
According to the mother of the baby, Patricia Victor, “I
laid my seven months old baby (Favour Victor) on the bed inside my house at
about 8p.m., to buy food for my son.
“By the time I returned with the food for my older son, my
baby had disappeared. I raised alarm and neighbours joined me in the search all
thorough the night, but we did not find him.
“I did not know that police officers had arrested the man
who stole my baby. Luckily, when they came the next day to investigate the
case, they located me.”

The baby has been released to the mother, while Happiness
Umaru, the suspect, will be charged to court today.
