Operatives of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) on Friday, May 26, 2023, successfully foiled an attempt by two women to sell a two-month-old baby.
The deal was uncovered in Oshodi when one Oge Okolie, aged 25, the intermediary between the mother of the baby and a prospective buyer was suspected of stealing the baby.
Passengers on a public bus noticed ceaseless crying from the baby with Okolie and questioned why she could not breastfeed it if it were her own biological child.
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, Maria Ahmadu, 26.
Commander of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS), CSP Olayinka Egbeyemi has since transferred the suspects and baby to the Gender Unit of the Command for further investigation and prosecution.BEWARE All Rights Reserved.
