A 23-year-old mom identified as Fatimah Kabiru has cried out after her third and youngest child was stolen by a strange man in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja.
According to reports, the sad incident happened on Monday, November 8, 2021, around 10:00 am in Dakwa community near Dei-Dei under Bwari Area Council.
It was gathered that the 3-month-old baby started crying while Fatimah was doing laundry.
To stop the baby from crying, Fatimah asked her first daughter, Mariam, 5, to take her outside to play with her.
Sadly, while playing with her baby sister, a man lured Mariam and the baby out of the compound by promising to buy juice for them.
The man led Mariam to an uncompleted building and took the baby from her. He then asked her to wait for him in the uncompleted building.
After waiting for quite a while for the man to get back with her sister and the juice, Mariam ran home, crying, and narrated to her mom what had occurred.
The mother raised an alarm and hurried to the said uncompleted building looking for the man but he was not found.
The traumatised mother reported the matter at Dakwa Police Station, located a few meters away from the scene of the incident.
However, she was told to come back and report if the baby was not found after 48 hours.
The father of the baby, Kabiru Musa, a staff member of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), was away in Imo State for training when the incident occurred.
It’s been over one week and the child still hasn’t been found. This isn’t the first time such has happened in the area, according to residents.
