A video has made rounds on social media showing a nurse being caught and accused of trying to steal a baby and sell it to one of her ‘customers’.
The nurse was seen carrying a newborn baby boy with the placenta still intact.
The spectators revealed she stole the baby from the hospital and wants to sell it, but she insisted that she didn’t, she claimed to be taking the child to its mother.
Bystanders who became suspicious asked her to call the woman who gave birth to the baby as they will not let her go until they see the woman she claims is the baby’s mother.
One man in the crowd is heard saying that the nurse has no right to take a newborn baby out of the hospital.
According to him, the only explanation for the nurse’s action is that she plans to sell the child.
When asked questions, the nurse revealed that she works at Mother of Mercy Hospital & Maternity Okpoko.
The community claimed she was on her way to sell the baby at Upper Iweka by Owerri Road in Onitsha because that’s where she was heading to.
Witnesses warned that parents of newborns should be careful to avoid a situation whereby they are told that their baby has died, whereas the baby was stolen to be sold to a child trafficking ring.
