Why I stole baby at Bauchi Teaching Hospital, by suspect


A 30-year-old woman, Sukyama Irmiya, who recently stole an eight-month-old twin baby from Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University Teaching Hospital (ATBUTH) Ward, Bauchi, has regretted her action.

Irmiya, who hails from Kanam Local Government Area in Plateau State, said while speaking at the Bauchi State Police Command, said could not bear the shame of the wrongful act.

The 30-year-old woman said: “I have realised my mistakes. You can only feel what I felt when you find yourself in my precarious situation.
“Before you know it, it has become a wound in my heart to the extent that I prefer that I am dead by now than stand this shame I am facing.
“I am like a walking corpse. I am ready to die now but I demand total forgiveness from God and everyone hurt by my actions.

Narrating how she stole the baby, she said: “I went into the hospital confidently, entered the ward and met the woman. I engaged her in friendly conversation and she loosened up with me.
“I asked her if she had twins and she said yes.

“When I asked her, now that you are sick, how are you breastfeeding the children? She told me that she was giving them milk.
“I asked her if I could take him to see how he looked, and she allowed me to do that.
“Immediately I took the baby, my heart told me to act as the mother and go. I then told her that I was coming and I just left the hospital and went away with the baby.
“I followed the main entrance to the main road and boarded a Keke (commercial tricycle) and went to the village called Za’a in Kanam LGA”, she lamented.
