Earlier this week, we reported that two lil’ boys – three-year-old Rafael and his 15-month-old brother, Michael–were kidnapped by their housemaid in their Magodo home…they have now been found!
PUNCH reports that they were found in the Sagamu area of Ogun State – they were abandoned near the Sagamu Police Station on Thursday.
However, no arrest has been made in connection with the abduction.
It was gathered that passersby in the area alerted the police to the presence of the children.
The 25-year-old housemaid, who was employed
about a week ago through a portal, OLX, sneaked the children out of
their parents’ house on Gateway Crescent in the Magodo, Isheri area of
Lagos State on Sunday when their parents went out for a shopping.
It became apparent that Juliet had
abducted the kids when Onajite and her husband, Elvis, returned from
their outing around 9pm and observed that the house was unusually quiet.
The kids’ parents could not be reached for comments on Thursday as calls made to their telephones rang out.
However, an uncle of the children, Mr. Darlington Abuda, told PUNCH Metro that the mother was busy attending to the kids – one of whom was said to be traumatised.
Abuda said the children would be taken to
a hospital for medical examination, adding that the whole family was
revelling in the euphoria of the kids’ rescue.
He said, “We are jubilant. Their rescue
is the best Christmas gift the whole family can ever get. Michael is
crying now and the mother is attending to him and his elder brother. We
give glory to God for returning them to the family safe and sound. I
