A couple has been arrested by the Kaduna State Police Command for stealing a three-day-old baby.
The couple, Kabiru Suleiman (30), and  Aisha Musa (19) and an accomplice, 27-year-old Salamatu Musa, all residents of  Rigasa, Kaduna State, had conspired and became close to the mother of the child during her early period of pregnancy in guise of friendship.
Three days after delivery, the trio stole the baby and disappeared.
Narrating how the defendants hatched the plot, the spokesperson for the state police command, ASP Mohammed Jalige, said a complaint was received about the missing baby on November 9, and after an intensive investigation, the suspects were arrested on November 26, at their hideout in Bauchi state.
”On receipt of the complaint, the operatives of the command immediately  swung into action, gathered sufficient intelligence, and succeeded in arresting the suspects namely; Kabiru Suleiman 30yrs (Husband), Aisha Musa 19yrs (wife), and Salamatu Musa  27yrs of age all resident of Abuja Road Rigasa.
“It is worthy to note that the suspects started nurturing the evil plan during the early period of the pregnancy by coming closer to the expectant mother in the guise of friendship and succeeded in whisking away the baby three days after delivery to an unknown destination.
“After an intensive investigation, the suspects were arrested on Thursday, November 26, at their hideout at Unguwan Baraya Jos Road Bauchi, Bauchi state. The baby was recovered safely and subsequently handed over to his parents,” police said.
Police promised that the suspects would be charged to court as soon as investigation was concluded.
