Two days old baby stolen from a Government hospital in Douala

Two days old baby has been stolen from the Souboum District hospital in Douala, on Saturday November 26, 2016. According to multiple reports, the mother of the baby left her child sleeping peacefully, to go to the bath, and when she returned, her baby had disappeared.

Witnesses confirmed the suspicious presence of a 25 year old lady who had spent the night in the maternity section of the hospital, pretending to be watching over a patient.

The security guard of the hospital was reportedly absent from his duty post during the incident, and for the first time, the Minister of Public Health Andre Mama Fouda acted immediately, issuing an Information Note addressing the situation.

Yesterday Monday 28th, Minister Mama Fouda in the Information Note, cautioned the public to be vigilant, in case they come across any 25 year old lady with a young baby.

The security guard has been arrested, and is being questioned at the Douala Judicial Police Station.
