A traditional birth attendant, Yetunde Osin and her father have been arrested for allegedly stealing a 2-month old baby girl from her mother.
35-year-old Yetunde Osin and her father, 65-year-old Jamiu Jimoh were accused of being a part of a child selling syndicate by Police detectives from Igbogbo Police Station in Ikorodu Lagos.
It was learnt that Osin delivered the baby for a 28-year-old woman named Stella on the 9th of November at her home at 4 Kadara street in Oyingbo.
She was said to have told the woman that the child was dead and even showed the mother a dead child.
