- The young mother whose baby was stolen in Kumasi has finally granted a media interview
- The worried mother says she has not set her eyes on her baby months after her delivery
A young woman, whose baby was allegedly stolen and sold by some two Senior Officers of the Regional Social Welfare Department in Kumasi, is demanding custody of the baby.
According to the 22-year-old, Deborah Tayeng, the foster parents who allegedly bought her child are still keeping her baby three months after the suspects were arrested.
This new twist, is contrary to police reports that the baby has been handed over to the Social Welfare Department for further care.
The mother of the stolen baby, who is terrified about her baby told Joy News’ Ohemeng Tawiah that she had endured sleepless nights over the delay in reuniting with her baby.
“I want to see my baby. I cry always. I have not been given my baby and the people who bought my baby are still keeping her,” Deborah pleaded.
Two Senior Officers of Social Welfare in Kumasi, Evelyn Jemima Alangeah and Samuel Obeng Afriyie were in May arrested by the police for allegedly stealing and selling the baby of the young mother.
According to police account, the two have so far admitted to selling the baby to an unnamed couple for over GHS16,000.
Police report states that the two suspects succeeded in stealing the baby girl from a maternity home where the mother, Deborah Tayeng, delivered after she sought support from the Social Welfare after her boyfriend abandoned her with the pregnancy.

The first suspect, Evelyn Jemima Alangeah, who offered to help the pregnant lady, was said to have taken Deborah to a private maternity home in Kumasi, and stole the baby the very day it was born.
Meanwhile, the two suspects are yet to face full prosecution for conspiring to steal baby.
