A teenager, Rachael John, 19, and a nine-year-old girl (names withheld) have been arrested by men of Ogun State Police Command for allegedly kidnapping a nine-month-old baby.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Muyiwa Adejobi, who  disclosed this in a statement yesterday, said the suspects were neighbours of the baby’s mother at Egbe Street, Ijebu-Ode.

Adejobi said police detectives attached to Ilese Division, Ijebu-Ode, made the arrest at old toll gate, Ijebu-Ode, on Wednesday.

He said the suspects allegedly demanded for N2 million for the baby to be released.

Adejobi said the mother of the baby reported to police, when she noticed that the suspects had taken away the baby.

He said police detectives immediately swung into action, and traced the suspects to Ogbere, Ijebu-Ode, where they were arrested.

The PPRO said one of the suspects had, through a letter, threatened to deal with the baby’s mother, adding that it was neighbours who saw the baby being taken away that alerted the mother.

He said: “The Commissioner of Police in Ogun State, Val Ntomchukwu, has directed that the matter be thoroughly investigated without delay, and necessary action taken for justice to prevail in the case.”
