Alleged baby thief runned out of luck when tried to steal a baby boy at Oguagba Park, in Owerri municipality, where she was stripped naked and lynched.

The suspect, identified as Chioma, believed to be  in her  middle age, was allegedly caught while trying to steal the baby, was made to confess her sins by the mob who took her life.

According gistmania.com reports, the deceased allegedly admitted to the crime, saying she was the only daughter of her parents.

A woman, who claimed to be an eye witness but simply identified herself as Nnenna, said that “the lady carefully took the little boy from where his mother laid him”.

Continuing, Nnenna said that the now dead child thief wanted to hurriedly leave the scene after picking the boy but luck ran out on her as she was nabbed by people around the scene.
 

“The angry mob was not prepared to listen to those that wanted her to be handed over to the police for proper investigation.

" Barely a few minutes after stripping her, the mob descended on her and the rest became history”, Nnenna recalled.

The stunned mother of the child who could not find the strength to mention her name, thanked God for saving her family from the agony that would have befallen them.

She thanked those who spotted the child thief early enough and stopped her from taking her child away.

Efforts made to speak with the Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Mr. Andrew Enwerem, failed as his mobile line could not be reached before going to press.
