According to Criminal Investigations spokesperson, Charles Twine, the baby thieves stole the baby right after the mother had given birth on June 29 at Naguru Hospital.
He revealed that police had managed to arrest a male suspect from Kibuli, a Kampala City suburb. The police used surveillance cameras to trace the suspect in custody according to a short statement from Twine.
On the contrary, though, Twine did not give the identities of the suspects. However, he said the suspect confessed to the police during interrogation.
The suspect said he managed to gain access to the baby by pretending to be a nurse and conniving with the baby’s caretaker.
The police will hand over the baby tomorrow to the parents at CID headquarters according to Twine. He also added that they already did a DNA examination on the bonafide parent of the baby.
Investigations show that most baby thieves target main public hospitals due to weak control. Apparently, doctors and nurses themselves orchestrate some of these scams. They target newborns the most.
They usually sell these stolen babies to childless Ugandan couples while possibly selling others to foreigners.
