Police arrest 2 women over plot to sell 2-month old baby


Operatives of the Rapid Response Squad, RSS of Lagos Police Command (RRS) Friday foiled attempt to sell a two-month old baby by the mother, Maria Ahmadu and her accomplice, Oge Okolie in Oshodi area of the State.

Okolie, according to the statement, was the intermediary between the mother of the baby and prospective buyer.

However, the deal was foiled inside a bus in the popular Oshodi area of the state, while Okolie was taking the baby to the suspected buyer, according to statement published on the social media pages of RSS.

The baby had started crying ceaselessly and suspicious passengers inside bus had queried Okolie why she could not breastfeed it if it were her own biological child.

She was about to be lynched when RSS operatives arrived at the scene and saved her from the angry mob.

“The suspect was about to be lynched when RRS operatives quickly stepped in to rescue her as well as the baby.

Preliminary investigations led to the arrest of the mother of the baby, one Maria Ahmadu ‘f’ aged 26,” the RRS said in the statement.

It added that Commander of RRS, CSP Olayinka Egbeyemi has since transferred the suspects and baby to the Gender Unit of the Command for further investigation and prosecution.
