A woman identified as Joy Ebarelen, has accused a midwife, Modebe Christiana (aka Nurse Ada) of drugging her in a bid to kill her, steal and sell her baby. It is alleged that the midwife who was assisted by her husband named Victor, smuggled the victim, while still unconscious, back to her home where they left her for dead.
Ebarelen however regained consciousness two days after and found herself, not in hospital but at home on her bed.
Ebarelen in an interview with Satellite Times, said she was almost killed by the duo of Nurse Ada and her husband Victor. She recounts her ordeal from the beginning,
Determined to recover her missing baby, Ebarelen reported the case to the Ubiaja Division of the Nigerian Police in Edo State.
The matter was later transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) Benin City While the accused, Nurse Ada had at first denied taking delivery of the child, she later brought the baby girl to the police station but not without coming up with a counter-claim.
She accused Ebarelen of of attempting to kill her own baby after birth and that was the reason she decided to take the baby away from her.
With this twist, Ebarelen suddenly found herself as the accused with the Police threatening to put her in detention. The following day at the police station, there was a new accusation waiting for her.
Ebarelen cried as she explained that the father of her new was not the same person who fathered her other three children. She named one Ardo Musa Mohammed, the Sarki Fulani of Ubiaja as the father of the child. She said that every person in the community including Nurse Ada and Oduma were in the know that Ardo had an affair with her that resulted in the pregnancy.
