RRS Helps Stranded Woman In Labour

The Rapid Response Squad (RRS) of the Lagos Police Command helped a woman in labour to the hospital where she eventually gave birth to a baby girl.

According to a post on its Twitter page yesterday, the Lagos Police Command stated that

“At about 3:00 a.m. on Friday, our officers on normal patrol of their beat around Ikoyi came across a man in distress. He was accosted and questioned where he was heading to that early during a lockdown. The man impatiently blurted out that his wife was in labour and that he had been looking for a vehicle for some time to no avail and he had no means of getting her to the hospital. He got into our vehicle and was rushed down to his home.

“Both man and wife were immediately taken to the hospital in Obalende. Our officers took time out today (Sunday) to check the family at their residence having been off duty yesterday. Behold, the wife had been delivered of a beautiful baby girl. Both mother and child are doing well.”
