The parents of little Miss Ramudantu Matimu, a 2-year old girl, have a lot to be thankful for.

The little girl was on Tuesday, May 22, 2018, rescued from the hands of one Elizabeth Ibezim who allegedly took the child away without the consent of her mother.

Her mother was busy selling her wares at the popular yam market, Mile 12 Ketu, Lagos, where the child was taken away.

When she eventually noticed that her child was missing, she became frantic and a search party was immediately raised to help her find her child.

Luck, however, ran out on the suspect when she was spotted with the child on her back by the baby's mother who was in a near state of hysteria.

The suspect was about to board a commercial vehicle at Under-bridge bus stop Ketu, a reasonable distance from where the child was taken.

The desperate mum rushed to the suspect and struggled to collect the baby from the suspect. She raised an alarm which attracted a mob that nearly lynched the woman.

But that was prevented by a Police team stationed near the market place.

The case is currently under investigation at the gender section of the Lagos State Police Command.
