Stolen kids back home
The three kids who were kidnapped by a nanny, Mary Akinloye, in Lagos were found on Tuesday night and re-united with the parents.
Father of the kids, Leke Orekoya, who confirmed the development stated that the children were undergoing medical checkup at a clinic.
Orekoya who however preferred to remain silent on the issue of the N13m ransom simply laughed, and said, “Yes, they have been rescued. We are very happy.”
The kids’ mother, Adebisi took to Facebook to thank Nigerians for their support and prayers.
In her words, “We give God all the Glory. Our Orekoya missing Kids have been found. Thank you so much everyone for ur prayers and moral and financial support all along. The list is endless, of awesome mothers, sisters, business partners, father’s and even kids too. You’ve been amazing! May God grant all your heart desires too. Much love always.”
The children, Demola,6; Adedamola, 4, and Aderomola, 11 months, were abducted by their househelp, one Mary Akinloye, 24 hours after she was employed by the family via OLX, an online sales portal, with an agreement of N10,000 to N15,000 monthly salary.
