Police parade hospital attendant, herbalist over missing baby’s placenta


The hospital attendant, Fatima Suleiman, and a herbalist, Salaudeen Ibrahim, arrested for allegedly stealing a newborn baby’s placenta on Oct. 31 at Capstone Hospital, Ilorin, Kwara State, were yesterday, paraded by the State Police command.

The state Commissioner of Police, Alhaji Aminu Saleh, while briefing newsmen at the Police Headquarters, Ilorin, said that the placenta was handed over to Suleiman to give to the father of the baby, Jimoh Abdulfatah, after a successful caesarean operation on the baby’s mother, one Bashirat Jimoh.

Saleh said the attendant instead, delivered the placenta to Ibrahim, the herbalist, for alleged money-making rituals.
