The Lagos State Police Command has dismissed Inspector Samuel Ukpabio, the police officer accused of stealing a day-old baby boy named Baby Joseph. The incident occurred on December 23, 2022, when Fortune Obhafuoso, the mother of the baby, alleged that Ukpabio, along with others, forcefully took her baby and transferred N170,000 to her as a warning. The dismissal of Inspector Samuel Ukpabio paves the way for his prosecution. However, the whereabouts of Baby Joseph remain unknown, and there are concerns about his well-being. Activist Dr. Abiola Akiyode-Afolabi, who has been advocating for Obhafuoso, expressed the need for the police to provide information on the baby’s location. Obhafuoso has faced significant trauma and has received support from psychiatrists. The case has attracted petitions and demands for accountability, as the public and Obhafuoso deserve to know the truth about what happened to Baby Joseph.
