According to the hospital’s management, the nurse, whose identity has been withheld pending further investigation, has been with the institution for over five years.

The authorities were alerted when two families raised alarms over apparent mix-ups with their newborns. Subsequent investigations revealed that the identification tags on the babies did not match the mothers’ records.

Local police were called to the scene, and the nurse was taken into custody for questioning. Initial reports suggest that the nurse may have been involved in a wider network engaged in illicit child trafficking activities, although these claims are yet to be substantiated.

The Anambra State Police Command has launched a thorough investigation into the matter. Parents and families are urged to remain vigilant and report any irregularities to the authorities immediately.
