Kidnapper caught after stealing a baby in mile 12 market


Along mile 12 market, a woman was arrested for kidnapping a two year old girl. She was arrested while attempting to flee with the baby.

The 2-year-old girl, Ramudantu Matimu was with her mum at the Yam market in Mile 12, Ketu, Lagos, on May 22, 2018, when Elizabeth Ibezim took her while her mother wasn’t looking. The mother of the child, who is a trader, was busy selling her wares and had no idea her child had been taken. By the time she noticed, a search party was immediately organized to help her find the child.

However, the child’s mother who was very much sad and sobber, sighted her child strapped to Elizabeth’s back while she was trying to board a commercial vehicle at Under-the- bridge bus stop Ketu, a reasonable distance from where the child was taken, the  mother quickly rushed to where the suspect was and struggled to collect her child from her. The mother immediately raised alarm and people surrounded the suspect. The timely intervention of a police team stationed strategically near the market to provide security, the woman would have been lynched.

The suspect was taken into custody and the case is currently under investigation at the Gender Section of the Lagos State Police Command.
