A mother from hell has been arrested with her accomplice by the men of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) in Lagos over plot to sell two month old baby.
The suspect, Maria Ahmadu and her accomplice, Oge Okolie were about to be lynched when RSS operatives arrived at the scene and saved her from the angry mob.
The incident happened at Oshodi area of the State.
According to the statement, the accomplice was the intermediary between the mother of the baby and prospective buyer.
However, the deal was foiled inside a bus in the popular Oshodi area of the state, while Okolie was taking the baby to the suspected buyer, according to statement published on the social media pages of RSS.
The baby had started crying ceaselessly and suspicious passengers inside the bus had queried Okolie why she could not breastfeed it if it were her own biological 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,” the RRS said in the statement.
It added that Commander of RRS, CSP Olayinka Egbeyemi has since transferred the suspects and baby to the Gender Unit of the Command for further investigation and prosecution.
