How new tenants abducted kids in Ogun compound

Two new tenants have reportedly kidnapped three children at Ajuwon area in Ifo Local Government Area of Ogun state.

The suspects identified to be two women allegedly took the kids away from the compound at Itsekiri street in Ajuwon axis.

Sources said the event happened on Friday evening, barely four days after new tenants moved into the house.

But a report said they carried out the act, 24 hours after they moved into the apartment.

It was further gathered that the women claimed that they were students of an Ikeja school-based in Lagos, and would stay at the apartment for three weeks to allow them complete their examinations.

The Police Spokesperson, Abimbola Oyeyemi confirmed the incident to Daily Trust last night, saying the command has launched a manhunt for the suspects.

He described the incident as a case of “child stealing.”

He said no arrest has been made in connection with the crime.

Oyeyemi said “It is a case of child stealing. The perpetrators disguised themselves as new tenants. They rented an apartment, moved in and they have stayed there for about one week.

“As part of their tactics, they became friendly with the old tenants’ kids, but the parents didn’t sense any danger. Suddenly, they pounced on three kids and took them away. The incident happened on Friday. No arrest has been made. We are still investigating the matter.”
