South-South News reports that the young men were nabbed as they forcefully snatched the baby from its mother who raised an alarm that attracted the youths who gave the suspects a hot chase and caught them before they could escape.

A source in the community who is also a youth leader, narrated how the incident happened:

“They kidnapped the baby boy and took to their heels immediately. The traumatized mother raised the alarm immediately, which caught the attention of some youths around.

The youths quickly intervened, caught the three of them and burnt them alive. The youths were angry because a similar incident happened last week when kidnappers stole a baby from the mother where a baby girl was stolen in the community two weeks ago."
