Birth attendant and her dad allegedly steal newborn girl, give dead one to her mom

.

It was learnt that on November 9, Osin assisted a 28-year-old woman, identified as Stella, to deliver a baby girl and afterwards, reportedly told the woman that the child died, and reportedly showed Stella a dead child.

She then took the new born baby to her father, Jamiu Jimoh, in Ikorodu. The police source said the suspects are part of a child stealing and selling syndicate. But Osin disputed the story, saying she found the baby under a bridge near her Oyingbo home.

She said: “On November 9, I was walking along the road in Oyingbo. I found a baby on the ground. It was a female child, so I took it. That was the mistake I made. I should have gone to report to the police, but because it was a female baby, I liked it.

That was how I took the baby home. But when I saw how everyone was behaving, gossiping, I brought the baby to my father in Ikorodu, so that I could be taking care of her from there.”
