A middle-aged woman, Falilat Olatunji, was on Wednesday arrested by men of the Ogun State Police Command for allegedly stealing a four-month-old baby boy in Abeokuta.
DAILY POST learnt that the suspect was arrested following a report by one Alhaji Abdul Akeem Dawodu, who reported at Sabo Ilupeju Police Station that one Ms Taiwo Bello was washing her clothes behind the house at Iyana Kajola, Mile 2, Abeokuta; leaving her four month old baby, Ibrahim Bello, sleeping in the room.
She reportedly got back to the room and discovered that the baby had been taken away by an unknown person.
It was said that the woman raised alarm, which attracted a lot of people to the house.
Ogun police spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said, “Upon the report, the DPO, Sabo Ilupeju division, CSP Alhasan AbdulAzeez, mobilized his detectives to the scene and commenced a full scale investigation into the case.”
Oyeyemi informed that the efforts of the police yielded positive result when the suspect was sighted at Ilewo Orile with the baby and was promptly arrested.
“On interrogation, the suspect, who resides at 23, Jawando street Ayobo Lagos confessed stealing the baby, but claimed that she only wanted to use the baby to deceive her husband whom she had earlier informed that she got pregnant for as the product of the pregnancy.”
Investigation further revealed that the suspect was once squatting in the same house with the parents of the baby and that she was present during the naming ceremony of the same baby.
The baby, police said, had been reunited with his parents.
Meanwhile, the Ogun State Commissioner of Police, CP Bashir Makama, has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspect to state Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for further investigation and prosecution.
Makama equally appealed to members of the public to always beware of people around them; saying “there are a lot of wolves in human skin.”

DISSOLVE INTERIM NDDC COMMITTEE, ALLOW NEW BOARD ASSUME OFFICE – AKPODORO TELLS BUHARI.
The leadership of the National Coalition of Niger Delta Ex-Agitators, NCNDE-A through its National President, Eshanekpe Israel, a.k.a, Akpodoro, has called on the President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government to dissolve the Interim Committee set up by the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio, purportedly to midwife the operations of the Forensic Auditors put in place by the nation’s head to audit the activities of the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC since inception.
The Coalition made this call in Abuja, Thursday at the wake of a well attended meeting of critical stakeholders in the Niger Delta project as it warned the Buhari’s administration to avoid the temptations of unconstitutional ism in its duties to the Nigerian people calling on him to warn Mr Akpabio as head of the supervisory ministry in charge of NDDC noting that the group he so appointed has no powers whatsoever in the Act establishing the regional intervention agency.
The group warned the former governor of Akwa Ibom state of the inherent dangers of impunity and official recklessness in the handling of the NDDC saying nobody was more Niger deltan than the other as it questioned the rationale behind the continued stay of the 3-man Committee in office after the federal government had appointed a new board duly screened and confirmed by the Senate to discharge their duties accordingly.
Akpodoro noted that although, Akpabio may have established the Committee with good intentions and motives but added that it was time for the President to disband the Committee and allow for the new board to take over as instructed by the Senate President, Ahmed Lawal, shortly after the confirmation of Pius Odubu, Bernard Okumagba as Chairman and Managing director respectively amongst others to take over the management of the Commission as provided for in the constitution.
The urhobo-born ex-militant leader warned the Buhari administration not to take the people of the region for granted stressing that what matters most to the people was the growth and development of the region devoid of political intrigues and manipulations embedded in suspicious shenanigans capable of stoking crisis in the delta.
The forensic auditors, the group added will work harmoniously with the new board for a thorough service delivery saying an interim Committee was most unnecessary at this stage of developments in NDDC.
The former warlord called on his teaming followers and other well meaning Niger deltans to stay calm and support the most visionary leadership of the NDDC since the creation of the regional agency as he urged them to dissociate themselves from vulnerable youth who he noted were being used by vested interests in the region to issue what he described as incessant bare footed threats against the federal government for selfish reasons.

Senate Screening: Ex-Militant Leader Hails Buhari On Nominees List…Calls For Stakeholders’ Support.
The leader of the National Coalition of Niger Delta Ex-Agitators, NCNDE-A, Eshanekpe Israel, a.k.a Akpodoro has commended President Muhammadu Buhari, for the courage to send to the Senate for screening, the list of the newly appointed members of the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, board.
The Senate at the plenary Tuesday, had through the Senate President, Ahmed Lawal, read out the letter from President Buhari requesting the confirmation of Pius Odubu, Bernard Okumagba, Prophet Erhue among other nominees for the management of the intervention agency.
Akpodoro who conveyed his commendation to the President in a press statement written and signed by him in Abuja, called on all stakeholders in Niger Delta project to join hand to make the new board achieve its lofty goals as championed by those he described as technocrats in their respective fields adding that those who were aggrieved over the appointments of the board should sheath their sword for sake of collective destiny of the Delta region noting that the people of the region practical development devoid of tribalism.
He said the President has left no one in doubt of his seriousness at developing the region by refusing the antics of opposition elements to stamp his feet on the ground adding that posterity will judge the nation’s leader aright.
According to the former warrior, development does not know creed or colours on account of which he said, the people of the region should rally support for the Odubu-led board to succeed.
The Urhobo-born ex-agitator also called on the new management of the NDDC to ensure a level playing field for stakeholders in the region and eschew every semblance of nepotism, tribalism and all other vices capable of dividing the people noting that the people of the Delta need peace to usher in the needed development.
The action of the President according to Akpodoro who doubles as the Coordinator of Urhobo Youth Forum for Change, UYFC, shines a sun of righteousness around his intention to aggressively take development in the region to its next level of change and this should spur stakeholders to rally support for the new board.
As a former deputy governor in Edo State, Odubu, Akpodoro stated has the managerial capacity to lead the best management board in the history of NDDC in a clear departure from the immediate past reigns of impunity and massive corruption which he noted doomed the region and worsening the condition of living of the indigenous people of the Niger delta in a manner that speak volume of recklessness and wickedness.
He called on the Senator Lawal Senate to expeditiously screen the nominees to enable them inject new and noble ideas into the development machinaries of the regional development of the Niger Delta.
