An unknown woman has stolen a newborn baby in Kumasi after lying to the child’s mother Mariam Yahya, a 19 years old mother that she is going to buy a face mask for her.
The baby was stolen on Wednesday 13, May 2020 at Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi.
The unknown woman met the baby’s mother Mariam Yahaya at Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital when she is going for a medical check up.
The unknown woman decided to assist her when she noticed that the woman was in pain after passing through Caesarean Section so the woman took the baby from the mother to go and buy the face mask for her before she can enter into the hospital premises but later run away with the baby.
“She came so innocently claiming that she want to assist me since I could not stand on my feet so she took my child without given a second thought since I was in a serious pain she said”.
According to her, as she was sitting there waiting for the unknown woman and her baby, the stranger disappeared with the baby.
Speaking to Silver FM’s Akwadaa Nyame, Mariam said she has reported the case to the central police station. Describing the suspect, Mariam said, the suspect is short, not too big and fair in complexion.
We are urging people that if they come across such a person, they should report to police so that the law should take its course,” said Mariam Yahaya.
