Lady arrested while dedicating a stolen child in church
Operatives of the Enugu State Police Command have arrested a 56-year-old woman, Edith Ewulu, for the alleged abduction of a 5-year-old girl, Felicia Godwin, in Emene, Enugu State.
A statement by Police Public Relations Officer Ebere Amaraizu, a Superintendent of Police, said that the suspect was arrested in a new generation church, during a thanksgiving and dedication service for the kidnapped child whom she had renamed Gift Ewulu.
The kidnapping suspect, who hails from Enugu Agidi in Anambra State, was allegedly found with little Miss Felicia Godwin, who was reportedly snatched from where she was playing at a Emene compound on February the 6th.
The suspect, Amaraizu said, revealed she bought the little girl from one Chioma who claimed to be running a social home in Aba, Abia State, for N470,000.
“According to the suspect, she bought the baby on February 7, 2019 from the seller at a renowned hospital in Umuahia, which convinced her that the business as genuine,” Amaraizu said.
