This was made known in a statement posted on the force’s Twitter page on Saturday and signed by the command’s Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin.

The statement said, “Operatives of the Rapid Response Squad on Friday, May 26, 2023, successfully foiled an attempt by two women to sell a two-month-old baby.

“The deal was uncovered in Oshodi when one Oge Okolie, aged 25, the intermediary between the mother of the baby and prospective buyer, was suspected of stealing the baby.

“Passengers on a public bus noticed ceaseless crying from the baby with Okolie and questioned why she could not breastfeed it if it were her own biological child.

“The suspect was about to be lynched when RRS operatives quickly stepped in to rescue her as well as the baby.
