The operatives of the Rapid Response Squad have foiled the attempt of two women to sell a two-month-old baby on Friday 26th of May 2023 in Lagos State.
One of the women identified as 25-year-old Oge Okolie who was the intermediary between the mother of the baby and the prospective buyer was seen with the baby on public transport in Oshodi.
Passengers questioned why she couldn’t breastfeed the baby when the baby continuously kept crying and suspected that she is not the mother of the child.
“The suspect was about to be lynched when RRS operatives quickly stepped in to rescue her as well as the baby.
Preliminary investigations led to the arrest of the mother of the baby, one Maria Ahmadu ‘f’ aged 26.”
Meanwhile, the Commander of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS), CSP Olayinka Egbeyemi has since transferred the suspects and baby to the Gender Unit of the Command for further investigation and prosecution.
