A unidentified woman has been apprehended with a stolen child after embarking on a trip from Asaba to Port Harcourt.
The woman who tried bribing a police officer during a stop and search, was nabbed upon being questioned by the security operatives. It was learnt that the woman could not remember when she gave birth to the boy who was drugged.
The boy was reportedly abducted in Onitsha and allegedly being taken to Owerri. An eyewitness, Achineme Victor who shared the story on Facebook wrote;
My experience from Asaba to Port Harcourt today was with mix fellings.
I joined RTC from Asaba to pH, on getting to Awo-omama (Imo state) , Our vehicle was stopped for visual search.
We were asked to pull over.
Our Driver: “Officer, we dey go pH oo”.
Police officer: who born dat boy?”
Driver: “see him mother”
Officer: “madam come back here.
As soon she alighted from the vehicle, she gave the police officer a Tip & and the office declined.
Officer: “na your son?”
Officer: ” when you born d boy?”
Mother: “I nor remember o”
Officer: “madam,so you know fit remb wen you born dis boy?”
Officer: ” call your husband”
Mother: put a call across and handed the phone to officer.
Officer: Oga, I dey with your wife, when your wife born dis boy”?
Father: father couldn’t remember too.
While we were complain of the delay, after about 30mins ,one of us said “look back oo, they’ve stopped another vehicle“
They one behind behind us was serious. After over 40 mins of interrogation, it was discovered that the boy was under the influence of drug.
The boy was stolen/kidnapped from Onitsha and he’s been taking to Owerri.
I won’t add pictorial evidence if am not SURE.
They (women) both admitted commiting the #crime
I want to thank the Nigeria Police for insisting on the right thing.
