During a school graduation ceremony in Ilọrin, Kwara State capital, a two-month-old baby (name withheld) was reportedly abducted from the mother.
The incident occurred at approximately 3:00 pm on Saturday, within the premises of the school located at Deeper Life area, Sawmill, Ilọrin.
The mother of the missing child, identified as Sekina but known as Iya Mujidat, recounted that her baby was taken by a woman who had accompanied her to the graduation ceremony to celebrate one of her children’s accomplishments. The suspect is described as a tall, fair-complexioned woman dressed in a purple Ankara attire, coupled with a black headscarf.
It came to light that the woman had approached Sekina about two weeks prior, expressing interest in learning how to make snacks. Sekina welcomed her request without knowing anything about her family or residence and did not have her contact information.
On the day of the graduation, the woman offered to assist Sekina by holding the baby while she accompanied her elder son, who was graduating, to receive his certificate. Tragically, that was the last time they saw the woman, as she disappeared with the baby. The incident was promptly reported to the ‘B’ Division Police station in Surulere, Ilọrin, but as of yet, no response has been received from the authorities.
The police spokesman in the state, SP Ajayi Okasanmi, confirmed the incident and stated that it had been reported to one of the police stations. An investigation is already underway, and the police are diligently working to apprehend the unidentified woman and recover the missing baby.
