The Commissioner of Police, Mr. Murtala Mani, said Chukwuemeka lives in the same compound with the parents of the baby girl at Mbak Itam. According to him, “The suspect, who has been married for some years now without a baby, left Lagos State for Uyo. Intelligence reports reveal that she has been staying in the same compound with parents of the baby in Mbak Itam with the intention to steal the baby-girl by drugging the mother.

Unfortunately for her, the Family Unit of the command, through intelligence reports, was able to rescue the baby and give her back to the mother.” Peace Chukwuemeka, who confessed to the crime, denied drugging the mother before stealing the baby. She linked her action to desperation due to her inability to bear children after 10 years of marriage. She said: “I did not drug her mother; it was coincidental that she was asleep and I seized that opportunity to take away the baby. I have been married for 10 years now, so I was desperately in need of having a baby.” I took the baby to my mother in the village, but she (my mother) refused to collect her from me. So I came back to Akwa Ibom and the owner of the baby started asking me of her baby. That was how I was arrested by the police.”
