26-Year-Old Man In Police Net For Stealing 7-Month-Old Baby In Lagos

Operatives of the Gender Department of Lagos State Police Command are currently investigating a 26-year-old man for allegedly kidnapping a 7-month-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. According to the mother of the baby, Patricia Victor, “I laid my 7-month-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.
