30-Year-Old Woman In A Childless Marriage Steals Baby Out Of Desperation

Akwa Ibom State Police Command has arrested childless 30-year old Peace Chukwuemeka, for stealing a month-old baby from her mother.

Peace Chukwuemeka, a trader, who resides in lagos was said to have moved to Uyo, Akwa Ibom with the intention of stealing a baby.

Confessing to the crime in an interview with Punch, Peace Chukwuemeka, said she was married for 10 years without giving birth to a child and had been desperate to have a baby. The mother of the baby said that Peace had drugged her and waited till she slept off before leaving with her baby.

“I have been married for 10 years now, so I need a baby of my own. I took the baby to my mother in the village but she refused to collect her from me. I came back to Akwa Ibom and the mother of the baby started asking me of her baby and I was arrested. I did not give anything to the mother; it was a coincidence that she was asleep and seized that opportunity to take the baby.” Chukwuemeka confessed.

Police Commissioner of the state, Mr. Murtala Mani, who spoke through the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Cordelia Nwawe, said:

“Let us say clearly that in the month of November, the Acid Section through the Family Unit of the Nigeria Police Force in Akwa Ibom was able to record a great feat by bringing back a one-month-and-some-few-days-old baby to her mother in Akwa Ibom.  The Family Unit of the command, through intelligence report, was able to rescue the baby”
