Gbarnga, Bong County: A young Liberian lady named Beatrice Moses has been arrested by police in Ganta for allegedly stealing a two-day-old baby.
According to our Bong County correspondent, the child was stolen from C. B. Dunbar hospital in Gbarnga, Bong County.
Frederick Nappy, the commander of the Bong County Police detachment told journalists that Madam Moses was arrested at the Ganta Checkpoint while trying to escape with the child.
“I teamed up with the various check points in the county moments after receiving the information and luckily for us the police in Ganta interrogated Beatrice, who was carrying a young baby over motorbike,” Nappy said.
Madam Moses told journalists that she posed as a family member of the child’s mother, and while the mother was using the restroom, she took the child and left the hospital’s premises.
“When I looked around no one was paying attention to me that’s how I made my way outside the hospital with the baby,” Beatrice said.
Beatrice also told reporters that her failure to bear child led to her action.
Meanwhile, the mother of the child, Bendu Karmo expressed thanks to God for her child’s recovery.
“I am very happy that I can still be breastfeeding my child,” Madam Karmo said.
In the meantime, Commander Nappy said the baby was recovered in good condition and assured the public that the suspect will be charged promptly and forwarded to court.
