A 25-year-old man, Solomon Omole, has been arraigned before an Ado-Ekiti chief magistrate court for allegedly stealing a baby.
The police prosecutor, Inspector Bankole Olasunkanmi, told the court yesterday that Omole and others still at large committed the offence on January 22, 2020 at about 2pm in Itaji-Ekiti.
Olasunkanmi alleged that the defendant and the others still at large unlawfully stole one Emmanuel Baba, a one-and-a-half-year-old child of Mr Baba Sunday.
