While parading the mother-son kidnap duo, the Commissioner of Police in the state, Taiwo Lakanu, said that when he received the news of the incident, he mandated his men to make sure the culprits were found and the baby rescued and two days later, the suspects were nabbed.

While confessing to the crime, Ngozi said she stole the baby to punish the matron of the maternity who was owing her a huge sum of money and refused to pay her after so many promises.

"I did not intend to sell the baby or do anything bad to him. I only took him so as to punish the matron of the clinic because she owed me a huge sum of money and refused to return it.

She has also done so many bad things to me and my family. I am sorry but I did not wish to harm the baby. I am a mother myself."
