The boy’s mother discovered after she returned home that her baby has been stolen through the window.
Investigation conducted at the Anti-Human Trafficking Women and Children Protection Unit, led the recovery of the innocent boy in Akure, Ondo State.
Investigation revealed that the suspects confessed of stealing the baby and planned to sell him off in Imo State.
The government prosecutor, Adisa Akinjide, urged the court to remand the suspects on the basis that the alleged offences against them are not ordinarily bailable.
The Magistrate, Shade Lawal, who precised over the matter, ordered the remand of the suspects in the Correctional Service Centre while the matter was adjourned to 30th of this month.
