“Investigation is still on going. More details will come to reveal what really transpired.

“The Nigeria Police would no longer reveal to the public the means which they effect the arrest of criminals because criminals these days now always take advantage of such information.

“All I can tell you is that the woman that stole the infant baby has been arrested and investigation is still ongoing

“We call on members of the public to be careful when dealing with strangers. The suspect was apparently nice to the victim, that was why she got the baby easily. Citizens should not be carried away by kind strangers”, Ikechukwu said.

She disclosed that the police detectives immediately swung into action, and on a tip off, traced the suspect to her residence, where she was arrested around 11pm, on Saturday.

The source added that the Commissioner of police, Amba Asuquo, has directed that the matter to be thoroughly investigated without delay, and necessary action taken for justice to prevail in the case.
