Man Disguises As a Deaf and Dumb Woman to Kidnap Young Boy in Benin

A man has landed in hot soup for disguising as a woman who was deaf and dump in order to kidnap a young boy in Benin.

 A middle-aged unidentified man, who allegedly stole a little boy at the popular Oba market, King square in Benin City, has been arrested by the Edo state Police Command.

According to PM News, the man was said to have dressed himself like a woman, covering his hair with a wig and pretending to be deaf and dumb‎.

According to an eye witness simply identified as Evelyn, the child thief is suspected to be a ritualist.

Evelyn, who claims to be a neighbour to the mother of the victim at the market, explained that the suspect lured the kid named Godwin, with biscuit when his mother, Mrs. Edith Elawure, who sells second-hand clothes, was busy attending to customers at the market.

The suspect after successfully luring the child, strapped him on his back and had escaped to one of the bus terminals in the area where he was eventually found by a search team of traders.

The angry mob were said to have descended on him and the wig on his head dropped off, exposing his real identity.

Men of the Oba market Central Police Division reportedly rescued the suspect from the angry traders who demanded that he must be punished.

Confirming the arrest and averted kidnap, the state police command spokesman, DSP. Abiodun Osifo said “The suspect has been detained and is already being interrogated.”
