A woman was arrested by security agents for allegedly stealing an eight-day-old baby from the natal section of Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University Teaching Hospital (ATBUTH), yesterday.
The suspect was arrested following a tip-off from her family members who confronted her when news of a missing baby who was delivered in ATBUTH went to town, after she took the baby to her home in Dull Village in Tafawa Balewa Local Government Area saying.
Although the suspect had claimed that she had given birth, her co-wife raised an alarm.
A house-to-house check was launched by security agents during which they found the missing baby and the suspect was immediately arrested.
Confessing to the crime, the suspect said she stole the babies due to her co-wife’s mockery of her childlessness.
