Police arrests kidnap suspect in Ondo

15 February 2013, 09:50

Ondo - The Ore Police Division in Ondo State said on Thursday it arrested a suspect who allegedly kidnapped a three-month old baby on Feb. 11.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Mr Wole Ogodo, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the suspect was arrested with the baby on Thursday at Omi road in Irele Local Government Area.

He alleged that the suspect took the baby to her friend's house at Ogbe quarters, Ore, in Odigbo Local Government Area since Feb. 11 and had been on the run since then.

"She never stayed in one location for a long time which was responsible for the slight delay in her arrest; the baby has been returned to the mother who has taken the child to General Hospital, Ore."

Ogodo said the 22-year old suspect claimed that she was a former student of a polytechnic in Osun, and wanted to bring up the child because of her inability to give birth after a pregnancy abortion.

"The suspect and her friend were arrested and are still in our custody and will be charged to court after further detailed investigations are carried out.
