“She stated further that the little girl was begging for alms under the pretence that the small boy was her younger brother and that their parents died in a ghastly motor accident in December 2020. Out of compassion, the woman took both of them to her house in Sagamu, in order to take care of the little boy deteriorating health condition.
“But immediately the boy fully recovered, the suspect wanted to single-handedly take the boy to Imo State. This aroused the woman’s suspicion, hence her report to the Police Station.
“Upon the report, DPO Sagamu division, CSP Okiki Agunbiade, detailed his detectives to go and bring the girl and the little boy.”
Meanwhile, the State commissioner of Police, CP Lanre Bankole, has ordered that the baby’s parents be contacted urgently, while the case should be forwarded to Lagos State command in which jurisdiction the crime was committed.
