Birth attendant allegedly steals newborn, gives dead one to nursing mother

Operatives of Lagos State Police Command have arrested a 65-year-old house painter, Jamiu Jimoh, and his hairdresser/birth attendant daughter, Yetunde Osin, for allegedly stealing a baby.



Jimoh, a divorcee, and Osin, a 35-year-old spinster, were arrested by policemen from Igbogbo Police Station, in Ikorodu area of Lagos.

A police source told Vanguard that Osin practises her trade at her 4, Kadara Street residence in Oyingbo.

It was gathered that Osin sometime, last year, assisted a 28-year-old woman, identified as Stella, to deliver a baby girl and afterwards, reportedly told the woman that the child died, and reportedly
showed Stella a dead child.

She then took the new born baby to her father, Jamiu Jimoh, in Ikorodu.

Meanwhile, while being interrogated after her arrest, Osin stated that she found the baby under a bridge near her home at Oyingbo. She said:

     “On November 9, I was walking along the road in Oyingbo and found a baby on the ground. It was a female child, so I took it. That was the mistake I made. I should have gone to report to the police, but because it was a female baby, I liked her.

    “That was how I took the baby home to Oyingbo. But when I saw how everyone was behaving and gossiping, I had to take the baby to my father in Ikorodu. Even when I could not come to Ikorodu from Oyingbo, my father was there to take care of her.

    Not long after I left his place on Sunday, someone called me on phone at night, saying my father had been arrested. I am a hairdresser, but I am also a traditional birth attendant. The baby was not delivered at my place.

    I was not the one that helped the mother of the child deliver the baby. “But when the police heard that I was a traditional birth attendant and asked me if I assisted the baby’s mother during delivery, I said yes.

    But I found the baby under the bridge at Apapa Road in Oyingbo and she has been with me since November.

Her father Jimoh, who resides at 4, Aro Street, Ikorodu, said he is not aware that the baby was stolen. However, he confirmed to Lateef Akinborode, Executive Director, Community Women’s Rights Foundation, CWRF, at Igbogbo, Ikorodu, that the baby was found with him.
He told Akinborode:

    “Osin is not the baby’s mother. She was not pregnant. “I do not know the baby’s mother. My daughter has never brought children to me before.”

Age used to mean something in Nigeria's recent past. Old men were revered for uprightness and speaking the truth. I guess not anymore.
I wonder what changed.

Well,...The hair dresser has admitted she was guilty in taking a child that is not hers... Consequences of her action shall be meted out..But I wonder why the father did not tell her to take the baby to a police station rather than taking care of the baby..

good deed maybe. Maybe he wanted to do a good deed but stupidity took over.


Or maybe his daughter had said somethigs to him about how lucrative baby trade is. Where did they find the dead baby though? That's my question? Something doesn't add up

Good deed, may be (I doubt that though).
Or just wicked business...

Whatever it was, they were reckless and stupid too.

Greed and wickedness. On a lighter note the state of the country, difficulties.

Remember she was a birth attendant. But the question should be why her father? Why not the woman that has the dead baby? Why did they keep the baby for that long? The story is weird though. Or may be both of them are into baby selling business. That might solve this puzzle

I don't think I have seen a  Nigeria man let alone a 65 year old one taking care of anew baby. Something must be fishing 🎣

Unless of course that is his calling. He's not even capable... Yeah, the daughter is a midwife but that doesn't make him a "midhusband" or a babysitter... A baby should never be put in his care.
