The suspects were arrested in Samaru Zaria, in the Sabon Gari Local Government Area of the state, and brought to the police headquarters.

During questioning, Maryam confessed to supplying Ngozi with stolen children and receiving payments ranging from N25,000 to N50,000 for each newborn baby from young girls with unwanted pregnancies.

She explained that she met Maryam two years ago because she used to patronise her chemist, and that Maryam one day brought a baby to her chemist for treatment but abandoned the child with her on August 30, 2023.
