The Lagos State Police Command has said that the two children of Mr/Mrs Aneru Mutana of Gbagada Phase 2, Lagos, kidnapped on November 26, 2018 by their househelp, simply identified as Busayo, have been found at a location close to Nigeria Seme border, in Benin Republic .
Busayo was on 26th day of November, 2018, instructed by Mrs Mutana, to go and pick the children from school and take them home as she (Mrs Mutana) wasn’t able to do so due to the nature of her job.
Unfortunately, the househelp had already planned how to kidnap her children, a 6-year-old boy and a 3-year-old girl and executed her wicked plan effortlessly because she is known to the school authorities and familiar with the children.
According to the Lagos State Police Image Maker, CSP Chike Oti, investigation so far revealed that Busayo is a member of a Kidnap syndicate who gives her out as househelp to unsuspecting parents.
“When she finally lands the job, she warms her way into the children’s heart and wins the trust of her employers. Once she gets to this stage, she bares her fangs”.
The Commissioner of Police, CP Edgal Imohimi warns households interested in engaging the services of domestic servants to beware of whom they are dealing with. He reiterates his earlier warning that employers ought to carry out a background check of persons they are bringing to homes; and profile them in order to make investigation easy for the police should the need arise.
The Command reasonably believes that Busayo may not be her real name. However it wishes that Nigerians should take cognizance of her face and alert the nearest police formation of her location and if possible arrest and hand her over to the police.
