“That is why we want to appeal to parents and guardians to take proper care of their children and wards.”

An eyewitness said the suspect allegedly abducted the four-month-old baby, while he was playing outside with his brother.

The eyewitness narrated, “The suspect carried the baby and was trying to escape through a shortcut to the Onaopemipo Street in Okitipupa and some people accosted him and questioned him, but he could not give any answer on how he came about the baby.
