Woman nabbed after she stole 2-year-old girl at Mile 12 market


Elizabeth Ibezim, who allegedly abducted a two-year-old girl in Lagos, has been arrested.

The Lagos State police spokesman, SP Chike Oti, said in a statement on Wednesday that the child was rescued as Ibezim was about to board a bus at Ketu bus stop in Nigeria’s commercial capital.

“When she eventually noticed that her child was missing, she became frantic and a search party was immediately raised to help her find her child.

“Luck, however, ran out on the suspect when she was spotted with the child on her back as she was about to board a commercial vehicle at Ketu bus stop, a reasonable distance from where the child was taken.

The suspect has been taken into custody and the case is currently under investigation at the Gender Section of the Lagos State Police Command.
