The police in Bwari, Abuja, on Tuesday arrested two suspects while attempting to steal a day-old baby from its mother.

The Divisional Crime Officer (DCO) of Bwari Police station, SP Bumi Bulus, who confirmed the arrest, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that investigation on the matter was ongoing.

He, however, said the main suspect (herbalist) was as at the time of filing this report still at large.

Mr Husseini Azana, a resident of Kuduru community of Bwari Area Council in the FCT and father of the baby, told NAN that he almost lost his baby to ritualists.

Azana said it was only through divine intervention that the child was not stolen, and thanked the police for swiftly arresting the suspects.

He said: “After my wife delivered on Monday, a lot of people came to celebrate with us on Tuesday but while I was at my work station, I was called to come back home.”
