A Yenagoa Magistrate Court has ordered that a 30-year-old man, Kingsley Solomon, be held at the Okaka Correctional Centre for allegedly stealing a two-month-old baby in Azikoro Town, Yenagoa Local Government Area, Bayelsa State.

The Bayelsa State Police Command arraigned Solomon before Magistrate Sarah B.I Avoh on two counts of assault and child theft.

The prosecution said that on June 23, 2023, on IYC Road, Azikoro, Solomon punched one Joy Lucky in the left side of her eyes with the intent to kidnap her child, committing an offence punishable under Section 282 of the Bayelsa State Criminal Code 2006.

The prosecution further informed the court that Solomon took a baby, Success Alfred, aged two months, from Joy Lucky on June 24, 2023, on IYC Road, Azikoro, and so committed an offence punishable under Section 298 (a) of the Criminal Code Law, Cap C14, of Bayelsa State 2006.

The First Information Report (FIR) also indicated that Solomon, who claimed to have had an affair with Joy in a brothel during her early pregnancy, was not Success Alfred’s biological father.
