A 42-year-old woman, Bella Achieng Ogolla from Kenya has been arrested after she abducted a 1-month-old baby from his mother at a salon in Homa Bay County, Kenya.

She was arrested by detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).

The baby was reunited with his mother, Benta Achieng on Thursday, January 21, after a 3-week search for the suspect who went missing after the incident.

Detectives probing the matter discovered that Ms Ogolla had met the baby’s mother in the hospital just days before she delivered.

Unknown to the baby’s mother, the suspect was hatching a plan that would see her steal the baby a couple of days later.

It’s still not clear how the suspect managed to convince her husband Bernard Okello that she was pregnant and had finally borne him a son.

According to 21-year-old Benta, the suspect reportedly promised her a gift once she delivered the baby.

About a week from the day Benta gave birth, Bella called and asked to meet her at a market so she could gift her as she had promised when they were at the maternity ward.
