A yet-to-be identified woman in her early 60’s has reportedly being arrested in Imo State for being in custody of a week old baby.
The woman is reportedly cooling off her feet at the Imo Airport Police facility after an Abuja bound flight passenger; Lauretta Chinenye, on suspicion that the baby was not the woman’s child alerted officials of the airport authority who later discovered that the passenger who was apparently travelling to deliver the new born baby to a potential client was not the real mother nor the grandmother of the baby.
Lauretta Chinenye, the founder and Managing Director of Laukamz and Co narrating the incident on her facebook handle wrote Today, while waiting to be boarded on my flight from Owerri to Abuja.
“I noticed this woman with this baby. The baby, I can tell from my experience of being a mother twice that this baby isn’t up to a week old.
“When I saw this woman with the baby, I thought she could be the grandma and expected to see the mother. I waited for a bit. I didn’t see any new nursing mother with her; at least you can tell a new nursing mother.
“When I didn’t see any, I felt maybe the mother died while giving birth.
“But again, as I paid attention to her, I noticed she wasn’t relaxed, and I thought, who will want to fly a week old baby?
“She couldn’t wait for the flight to be called for boarding as she went to those people that check our ticket twice.
“I was really getting worried about all the news of people buying babies. I continued paying attention to her body language.
“Immediately they called for boarding; she ran with the speed of light.
“That was when I decided to call the Airline staff’s attention to ask if they checked that baby’s to know how many weeks old the baby is and to know if that baby is hers.
“I told them that baby is not up to a week.
“The Airline staff In Owerri, with the speed of light, went after her to talk to her. I kept monitoring and noticed from where I was standing she was not coherent to the staff.
“Immediately they got her out to explain who’s baby is that, and I could see her shaking.
“We left. I don’t know what happened after that, but I hope the airline got a believable explanation or handed her over to authorities to explain who’s baby is it.
I pray it isn’t what I was thinking.”
In a later post Chinenye wrote “Ladies and gentle men, She bought the baby ohhhhhh. I am in tears!!!”
