Apparently owing to continuous deteriorated economy, a horrible and new strategy introduced by armed gunmen to kidnap or rob neighborhood victims in Nigerian states has been uncovered.
The new strategy is that, the armed gangster go about with wrapped new born babies in a white cloth and intentionally drop it right in front of the gate of their victims and hide by the wall.
The robbers strategically position themselves and, suddenly, grab their victims who would come out of the gate of their house to rescue the baby that’ll be crying loudly and continuously.
The baby could be made to be crying for over 30 minutes, until the voice is heard by the victims in late night.
An eyewitness woman, who encountered them, released a statement in Kaduna, saying, “My husband and I witnessed a scene from the window around 1:30 am to 2:45 am one night, and I have decided to share so that we all keep guard.
“Someone intentionally left a baby, wrapped in a white cloth right in front of our gate. The baby cried for over 30 minutes, and it stopped crying.
“A guy in black, hiding behind our wall crawled to hit the baby again to cry. When they realized no one was coming out to check on the baby, he crawled to carry it off the road and in a few minutes, a taxi came and they went away,” the witness stated.
The eyewitness continued that, “We called the contact number of our neighbor; we asked, if he had seen anything of that sort around his house, and he informed us that, it’s a new strategy of armed robbers and that his elder brother was robbed last week by the same method,” and advised everyone be conscious and keep their guard.
