A woman identified as Bella Achieng Ogolla has been arrested after stealing a 1-month-old baby from his mother at a salon in Homa Bay county, Kenya.
The detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations, DCI, arrested the 42-year-old suspect and thr baby was re-united with his mother, Benta Achieng on Thursday, January 21.
This was after 3 weeks of intensive search for the suspect who went missing after the incident.
Security officials probing the matter discovered that Ms Ogolla had met the baby’s mother in hospital just days before she delivered.
Unknown to the baby’s mother, the suspect was hatching a plan that would see her steal the baby a couple of days later.
Its still not clear how the suspect managed to convince her husband Bernard Okello that she was pregnant and had finally borne him a son.
According to 21-year-old Benta, the suspect reportedly promised her a gift once she delivered the baby.
About a week from the day Benta gave birth, Bella called and asked to meet her at a market so she could gift her as she had promised when they were at the maternity ward.
When they met at the said market, the suspect asked the new mother to wait for the gift to be brought by her friend who was running late.
