LADY PRETENDS TO BE A FRIEND ONLY TO STEAL NEWBORN BABY FROM CHURCH 



A lady caused a stir during a church service after storming the church building to make away with a newborn baby. 23yrs old Mercy Akinyi Otieno has been charged to court for allegedly stealing a one-and-half-month-old baby during a church service

She stole the baby on January 31, at a church, the Jesus Teaching Ministry, in Nairobi, Kenya.

The baby’s mother, Jeridah Oundo, said she came to church with her husband and son, where she met the accused who claimed they were from the same hometown in Kakamega.

Shikanda explained that she and Otieno got closer and started talking about home. Assuming she was trustworthy, Jeridah left her child with the lady and went to meet her husband inside the church.

By the time she came back the stranger was gone and efforts to find them were fruitless.

The accused who was later arrested at Ongata Rongai after being found with the infant, denied the charge of stealing the baby while appearing before chief magistrate, Francis Andayi.

She will now answer to charges on Monday, March 27.
