Police Nab Teenage Girl Who Abducted Her Mistress’ Son In Ogun

The suspect and her victim

ABEOKUTA - The Ogun State police have arrested a 14-year-old housemaid, Favour Iwuozor, who abducted her mistress’ two-year-old son inside a church in Lagos.


The suspect was arrested on Monday in Sagamu by operatives from Sagamu Divisional Headquarters after one Victoria Nwafor reported that she saw the teenage girl on December 22, 2021, carrying a very sick boy in the Yaba area of Lagos State begging for alms.


Victoria Nwafor told the police that the girl claimed she was begging to raise transport fair required to take the boy to her younger brother in the Southeast, since their parents had died in a ghastly auto accident in December 2020.


The woman said out of compassion, she took them to her Sagamu home in order to take care of the little boy’s deteriorating health condition but observed that when the boy fully recovered, the teenage girl attempted to single-handedly take the boy to Imo State.


According to her, the strange conduct by the girl triggered suspicion and decided to report the matter to the Sagamu Divisional Police Headquarters.


The Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, who disclosed this yesterday said the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) for Sagamu Division, Okiki Agunbiade detailed his detectives to go and bring the girl and the little boy to the station.


Oyeyemi, a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), said when interrogated, the girl confessed that she was a maid of the boy’s mother and that she absconded with the boy since December 19, 2021, with the intention of taking him to Amaraku in Isiala/Mbano Local Government Area of Imo State.


She admitted that she took the boy from the church during the Sunday school session as the Sunday school teacher knew her with the boy’s mother and had no issue releasing him to her.


She also told the police that she decided to beg for alms in order to raise transport fare to Imo State.


The Commissioner of Police Lanre Bankole has ordered that the boy’s parents be contacted urgently, while the case should be forwarded to Lagos state command, which has jurisdiction over the crime location.
