How 3-month old baby was stolen from 5-year old girl in Abuja

3 months old baby,

This is the story of how a 3-month old baby was stolen from 5-year old girl in Abuja.

Her mother, Fatimah Kabiru, 23, and a mother of three has narrated how a yet-to-be-identified young man stole her 3-month-old baby girl from her first daughter who was playing with her in their compound.

The incident occurred on Monday, November 8, 2021, around 10:00 am in Dakwa community near Dei-Dei under Bwari Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja.

SaharaReporters gathered that Fatimah had asked her 5-year-old daughter, Mariam to be playing with the baby in the compound.

The baby was said to be crying while Fatimah was washing clothes inside.

Mariam was said to have succeeded in engaging and pacifying her sister, Fatimah, who is her mummy’s namesake.

The distraught mother, who spoke to SaharaReporters in Hausa through an interpreter, said Mariam later came to inform her that a man had taken the baby away after luring her with the promise that he would buy her ‘bobo juice’ if she would follow him.

She said the man snatched the baby from her alongside a piece of cloth used as the wrapper and asked her to wait inside an uncompleted building to enable him to buy the juice but eventually fled in the process with the baby.

She said it was at this point she raised an alarm and rushed to the said uncompleted building to catch the ‘strange man’ who had stolen her baby.

However, she soon realised the assailant had escaped.

It was also gathered that efforts by her neighbours and passersby to find the man shortly after the baby was taken
were unsuccessful.

The traumatised mother of three in company with a neighbour called Ado formally reported the matter at Dakwa Police Station, located a few meters away from the scene of the incident, but nothing positive came out of it.

It was learnt that Fatimah left the police station in anger and left her neighbour behind following the barrage of questions asked by the police officers on duty.

She said, “When we get to the station, they were asking us all manner of questions and they told us that we should come back and report if the baby was not found after 48 hours.”

The father of the baby, Kabiru Musa, a staff member of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), was away in Imo State for training when the incident occurred.

He has, however, been briefed.
