Woman In Motorcycle Drags 13-Month-Old Baby Into The Motorcycle & Disappears

Physinews Reports : There was confusion in Rumuokurusi
community in Obio/Akpor Local Government
Area of Rivers Nigeria when an unidentified woman in a
commercial tricycle (keke) snatched a 13-
month-old baby, Chinazamepkere Eke, and
disappeared to an unknown destination.


The unidentified woman had ostensibly
instructed the keke rider to get close to a six-
year-old girl known as Chinyere Agbai carrying
the baby on her back, before pulling her victim
into the vehicle to Agbai’s dismay.

It was gathered that the child theft, which
happened at about 8.30 am on Monday
shocked indigenes of the community, who said
that such an incident had never occurred in the
area.

The distraught mother of the stolen child, Ms.
Oluchi Eke, who spoke with Southern City News
on Thursday, said she was in her shop where
she sells provisions when she learnt that her
baby girl had been stolen.

Eke, who said she had separated with her
husband, explained that she was dazed by the
information she got about her baby.

The 31-year-old mother of two said it was not
the first time her baby would be brought to her
in the shop and wondered why a fellow woman
would steal her second child in such a manner.

Eke, however, explained that she had reported
the matter at Elimgbu Police Station.

According to her, “This thing happened on
Monday; my first daughter was carrying the
little girl  to the shop on the road around
Orianwo Street, by Tank junction in
Rumuokurusi.
“A woman in a keke dragged the little baby into
the Keke and went away with my child. The
baby that was carrying the little girl is six years.

“I was in my shop while the two children were
coming to meet me because they had returned
from their extra-moral class.

“When the thing happened, I went to Elimbgu
Police Station to report it. The police said I
should be coming to the station. I have put
everything in God’s hands.”


Eke, who is from Bende LGA in Abia State,
pointed out that she had not called her
estranged husband to inform him about the
development, adding that she was not sure if
her husband was aware of the stolen child.
She, nevertheless, defended her husband,
maintaining that her husband, Mr. Okechukwu
Agbai, cannot be involved in the stealing of her
child.

“I am not in good term with my husband. I am
not suspecting my husband to have a hand in
the act. The baby is one year, one month now.


“My husband’s name is Mr Okachukwu Agbai.


I have not called him after the incident
happened. I don’t know if he has heard of it.
“I have been calling his number for over two
months now, but it is not going. I have two
children, two girls and they have taken one.

“My husband did not claim ownership of the
baby. I want the world to hear of the stealing of
my child and I appeal to the police to help me
to find my baby.”

According to Eke, who is popularly known as
Mama Chinaza, her stolen baby has two
birthmarks under one of her armpits and big
eyeballs.

When contacted, the State Police Public
Relations Officer, Mr. Nnamdi Omoni, said he
had yet to be briefed on the matter.


He, however, promised to call the Divisional
Police Officer of the area to get details on the
stolen child.
