The children, Raphael and Michael, were abducted from their home in Isheri, Magodo Estate area of Lagos State on Sunday night by the maid identified as Juliet.
The Lagos State Police Command yesterday said it has started search for the fleeing maid and the children aged one and three years old.
The parents of the kids have only just recently employed the maid. One Darlington who identified himself as a relation to the kid’s parents alleged that the mother of the children left them in the care of the maid, their sick grandmother and her nurse. The maid took the kids away after the elderly woman and her nurse have gone to bed. All efforts to reach her or the agency by phone proved abortive.
Kenneth Nwosu, the Police Public Relations Officer, said: “The situation is rather unfortunate and traumatic. The parents reported the incident to the police and we are in search of the missing persons. We are making every effort to apprehend the fleeing maid and rescue the children. It was during our investigation that it was revealed that the maid was recently employed. The sad thing is that the parents of the children actually contracted the maid without verification. At the same time, we have expanded our dragnet”.
