A 23-year-old lady, identified as Itunu Adepoju, has been arrested by the police in Oyo State for allegedly ste@ling a three-day-old baby girl in Itamerin area of the state.

The suspect who lives in Ajah, Lagos State, was arrested following a complaint by the mother of the stolen baby, Monsurat Lateef, 36.

It was gathered that Monsurat delivered a baby girl on Saturday, July 16 at Mission House, in Itamerin, Ogbere.

According to a statement by the command’s spokesperson, SP Adewale Osifeso, “However on Tuesday July, 19, she proceeded to Abaemu General Hospital, Ona-Ora to initiate immunization proceedings for her daughter from where she met the suspect who approached her as a friendly patient who also soughted Medical intervention.

Unknown to Monsurat, the suspect had just s#ffered a st%llbirth and had been referred to the same health facility for scan. They got chatting and the suspect indicated interest in moving down to Ibadan from Lagos and was in dire need of accomodation.

Monsurat driven by empathy decided to oblige the total stranger by assisting her with the House search. She invited the suspect over to spend the night because at the time, the House searching had encroached into late evening.

In what seemed a premeditated action, at about 1am, the suspect, Itunu Adepoju who had now totally gained the confidence and trust of her host pleaded to use a nearby Point of sales terminal with the three-day-old baby carefully tucked away on her back.

The money she intended collecting according to her was sent to her by her Fiancé for the purpose of completing the rent process. The Complainant obliged the suspect before she later realized she had been tricked and that the suspect had absconded with her Child.”
