The operatives of Rapid Response Squad of the Lagos
State Police Command on Monday last week nabbed two teenagers fleeing
the Abuja abodes of their parents and re-united them with the parents on
Friday.
The
teenagers, Chidubem Amaechi, 13 and Chinedu Onyebuchi, 13 were
apprehended by the RRS operatives of Monday morning after alighting from
an Abuja bus at Ojodu Berger, Lagos. They’re sighted wandering before
being invited for questioning.
The
children had lied to the officers during interrogations that they were
kidnapped and blindfolded before they were driven to Lagos by their
abductors. They added that they escaped from their abductors while they
sleeping an under bridge before Ogun –Lagos long bridge. .
An
investigation into their kidnapping was launched immediately and found
to be false. Their parents, who had been looking for them in Abuja,
since Sunday, May 14, 2017, were shocked when contacted.
It
took 3 days of questioning before, Chidubem opened up that he and
Chinedu connived to leave Abuja because of the poor states of the
parents. According to Chidubem, “we noticed that our parents were
suffering in order to take of care us. .
We
decided to come to Lagos and work for sometimes. Whatever we were able
to raise in six months, we would handover to our parents for them to
start business. We realised that the hardship was too much and that we
would be helping them if we leave our families in Abuja in search of
better opportunities in Lagos, he stressed.
I
brought my N4, 200 savings, while Chinedu added N500 as transport fare
to Lagos. We were already in Lagos before we realised that we were
simply being stupid. We were wandering about when the officer invited us
for questioning.”
The
Commander, Rapid Response Squad, ACP Olatunji Disu, who received their
parents on the fifth day of being in the Command’s custody in his
office, appealed to parents and guardian to monitor and take good care
of their wards.
The boys were re-united and released to their parents on Friday after they had promised not repeat their actions again.
