She said she was supposed to go with her mother to the hospital for treatment, but the suspect decided to be a good samaritan to her by escorting her to the hospital hence, stopped her mother.
The nursing mother explained that she gave the two weeks baby boy to the said soap seller when they got to the hospital while she went for treatment, but after her treatment, she came back and the suspect was nowhere to be found.
