During interrogation, the suspect confessed to the crime and pleaded for forgiveness, claiming that she could not understand the spirit that entered her to have committed such act.

Narrating how the incident happened, the mother of the baby, Binta Alhassan said the woman stole the child while she was bathing.

According to Binta, the suspect came to her begging to pass the night which she obliged her by giving her a room but to her shock while on her way from the bathroom the following morning the woman had absconded with the baby.
