“In November, the ACID Section through the Family Unit recorded a great feat by bringing back a one month and some few days old baby to her mother in Akwa Ibom. The suspect, who has been married for some years without a baby, left Lagos state to Uyo, stayed in a compound in Mbak Itam with the intention to steal a baby from her neighbour. The family unit through intelligence report was able to rescue the baby back to the mother,” Mani said.

The baby’s mother, Fatima Ibrahim, said that the suspect was staying with them in the same compoun, adding that she “drugged” her to sleep before stealing her baby.

In her confessional statement, Peace Chukwuemeka said she was married for 10 years and was desperate to have a baby but however, denied drugging before stealing the baby.

“I did not give anything to the mother, it was a coincident she was asleep and I seized that opportunity to take the baby. I have married for 10 years now so I needed a baby of my own. I took the baby to my mother in the village but she refused to collect her from me. So I came back to Akwa Ibom and the owner of the baby started asking me of her baby, so I was arrested,” Chukwuemeka said.
