Nursing Mother Remanded In Prison For Robbery
How can one describe a woman who is breastfeeding a baby being involved in robbery even with her child in her hand?
The nursing mother, Chinwe did not commit the crime alone, she did it with her husband, Umunna.
They met their waterloo when the robbed attacked an undergraduate student of Ebonyi State University (EBSU) Abakaliki, Miss Maria Nwankwo.
Chinwe, carrying their about six month-old baby, and two others were said to have robbed the victim on the 30th day of March 2018 of one hundred and five thousand naira (105,000.00) meant for her school fees and upkeep at gun point.
Narrating her ordeal, she disclosed she boarded the 'one chance' taxi at Abakpa junction in Enugu state on her way back to school in Abakaliki, but regretted that they diverted to a road unidentified by her and robbed her of all the money in her possession which her Enugu based parents gave to her.
But according to her, the robbers ran out of luck as some mobile police men on patrol suddenly started 'stop and check' close to that junction which they were delayed. She said she trekked out of the track road to meet the policemen at the check point and raised alarm.
She stated that on sighting the people who robbed her in their taxi at the check point, she lost the patience to report to the police quietly, and succeeded in drawing the attention of both the suspects and police, the male ones fled while Mrs. Chinwe Umunna was apprehended alongside her breastfeeding baby.
Maria Nwankwo, the victim said Mrs Umunna Chinwe, while under police custody, admitted sharing #50,000.00 from the loot because of her baby which she uses as camouflage to confuse their unsuspecting victims.
Consequently, on the 11th day of April 2018, Mrs Umunna who had no defence counsel was arraigned in an Abakaliki Magistrate court and remanded in Abakaliki federal prison for armed robbery.
