Agnes Dadzie, a resident of Akyem Akroso has been left in distress after a stranger who befriended her on her way to Ashiaman area of Ghana, reportedly stole her baby.
It was gathered that the two-month-old baby was stolen by the stranger, under the pretext of going to buy phone airtime at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle in Accra, Ghana. Recounting the ugly experience, the distraught mother said she had wanted to show her baby to her in-laws whom she had never seen since the birth of the baby.
Joy News reported that Agnes said she managed to convince her best friend, Charity Denyo, a mother of twins, to join her to get something to do. Narrating the incident, Ms Dadzie said she arrived at Kwame Nkrumah Circle with her best friend Charity Denyo, who was also a mother of twins. She said she called her brother, Akwasi, to come pick them up, but he said he was washing some few clothes for his master after which he will run a few errands before coming over to pick them. She said whiles they were waiting, a woman passed by with smiles on her face. Ms Dadzie said she noticed the woman was gazing at them and drew the attention of her friend to it, but she shrugged it off saying it is normal for the woman to admire their babies. The said lady then approached them and picked the eldest of Ms Denyo’s twins to play with. The lady later overhead the two visitors saying they were hungry and had to find something to eat.
In a rather kind gesture, Ms Dadzie said, the stranger offered to buy them lunch at the Las Palmas restaurant nearby. According to Ms Dadzie whilst they were inside the restaurant, the woman complained that the fan under which she (Ms Dadzie) was seated was not good for her baby so she took the baby from her and handed Ms Denyo’s baby to her. Afterwards, the woman stood up to take the baby out, saying she was going to get some mobile phone credit. Ms Dadzie said she waited and waited but the woman never returned with the baby. She then ran out of the restaurant only to be told the woman was seen heading towards the rail area with the baby. The case has since been reported to the Police who have already began investigations.
