The Police Command in Lagos State says it has arrested a 21-year-old woman, simply identified as Blessing, for allegedly stealing a one-month-old baby boy.

The Command’s Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed the arrest to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday.

Hundeyin said that the mother of the baby, whose name was not mentioned, reported the case at the Elere Police Division on Monday at about 2.30p.m.

He said the mother of the baby reported that at about 7.00a.m. on Saturday, while she was sleeping at home with her baby, Blessing allegedly stole her child and went away.
