    I have always said that Nigerians are too sentimental especially when there is no reason. This man denied you and your child and you felt it was ok for his mom to stay in your house for months??? My dear thank God the UK was on your side o. This is happening to many women in Naija on a daily basis and nothing is being done. Nigeria is a terrible country for wives and mothers

      My first thoughts exactly. No relationship no nothing. Like seriously!!
      Never should have allowed it but you learn everyday thought it was an expensive mistake.

      it’s possible the grandmother has been supportive. she won’t be the first grandmum to accept a child that her son rejected. dem plenty. if the woman was nice to her why cut her off cause her son is a jerk

    Thank the Lord. I hope they prosecute the grandma. How dare she carry someone else’s child to another country without the mother’s permission. Her own son didn’t want the child yet, all of a sudden, they want the baby.

      ‎Can you listen to yourself?
      It’s still a kidnap. You have NO right to take away someone’s child without the person’s consent, regardless of who you are to the person . It doesn’t matter if you’re having problems or not. Relatives don’t respect people’s decisions and privacy at times, and feel they can do whatever cause they’re family. Wait till your Mother-in law takes your child away from a country, to another while you’re at school or work. That wouldn’t be kidnap since she’s your Mother-in law? These days, people make comments without even thinking.

      Madam free thinker I appreciate the fact you think of the grandma’s reason for doing it , it shows thinking outside the box but see I dnt wnt to know her side of the story.

      Her child is her child she has no right to take her away from the girl.

      This is 2014 women should cease been subjected to crap all in the name of gender.

      Even in nigeria no1 shud take rubbish from any body cos they are women

      We are not slaves we are not inferior . Infact our role in the society has been underestimated for too long.

      She went through the labor not the grand mum.

      Nonsense I dont even want to know the story I am just glad she did not allow anyone bully her.

      So many women are still being bullied i am glad women are no longer taking it.

      Way to go!

      Free thinker. Are you for real? The child is not hers! Grandmother is just that- a grandmother. She is not her mother and her rights to the child are simply and always will be subject to and after considering the rights of her biological parents. In this case, the father denied his rights at birth so the governing rights to this child are with the mother. Everybody else comes second.

      Only and only if the courts determine that she is an unsafe parent can these rights be taken away from her. Her grandmother has no right to the child whatsoever!

      Thank God the little girl has been found. I am so pleased for her mummy. I cannot imagine what she has gone through. It proves the point- be wise with whom you chose to have a relationship with. It is important to check out family background, level of exposure and so on because some of our archaic cultural practices have devastating effects on the women of our generation. If you dont want to be forced into having to put up or deal with such, dont marry/get involved with guys/girls from such families. It might seem snobbish but saves you from a lot of grief further down the line.

      U hit the nail on the head, ladies check out some family backgrounds before u marry, if not you are setting yourself up for a life of misery, that’s a fact.. Some families are still living in the stone-age, i know a couple of people going through hell because of extended family members. Just Imagine this Grandmother or whatever, I have no words really..

    • Wow

      October 12, 2014 at 3:50 pm

      Emmm yeah, actually it is kidnapping as she’s not the custodial parent!!! A grandparent has NO right to take a child away from their custodial father or mother without the custodial parent’s consent.

      So you get pregnant for a man. He abandons you. His mother shows up at your house. You open the door and take her in. One day you come home and the child is gone. You find out that the grandmother who has no LEGAL right to your child, who was given the PRIVILEGE of laying eyes on the child that her own yeye son denied, carried her two left legs and disappeared with that child without telling you. You in the spirit of being a “free thinker” automatically decide this is acceptable because “a grandmother can never kidnap her own child”…you are a moron and at the same time I feel sorry for you. May you never know the pain for even 2 minutes of not knowing where your child is.

    • Mama

      October 12, 2014 at 10:26 pm

      Just wandering how your comments has few likes and that moron free thinker has 46….. He or she must have liked their own stupid comment multiple times……. The grandma has no right whatsoever to take her without her mothers consent….

    Hopefully the grandma didn’t go and use the girl for rituals. These days nothing is impossible.

      Actually it’s the maternal grandparents who are into dangerous village rituals.

      I didn’t mean to love your comment twice. I meant to reply and say a woman who has had kids herself yet can be so wicked as to deceive another mother, take her child away and get on a plane can kill. Besides, if the maternal grand parents were fetish no man could reject their child. They would done some love potion or something. If they have jazz why did the kidnapper try them? Abeg.

      Lmso @ maternal parents being fettish. Do you think you will be typing this if they truly were???Rubbish!!! Nigerians and being quick to accuse someone of being fettish in their bid to “win” people over. People are longer stupid!!!!

    Am very sure …. we are not hearing the whole story

    • madamsofo

      October 12, 2014 at 3:19 pm

      half or whole story, no kid should be separated from his/her mother except the mum is endangering the child and that should be the job of the court. Nigerian women like you need to wake up and smell the coffee if you don’t want your rights taken from you or your whole world trampled on by some self-deserving, selfish relatives

      I don’t care what story is remaining at home…., a child is not a book u borrow or steal….. U never take someone’s child without the parents permission.,..carry a child for 9 months then come back and comment

    As much as I do not want to judge blindly (without hearing both sides of the story), it is still VERY WRONG for anyone – grandma or not – to kidnap a child and think you have right to do that (without the mother’s consent). That must have been a traumatic experience for mother and daughter. It’s even worse that she took advantage of the lady’s trust and made away with the child and it’s just plain ANNOYING that a woman would do that to another woman knowing how scary that might be.

    Grandma, if you need a child to play with or babysit, please, go get your son.

  12. Shandi

    There’s no story here. Even if the woman were her Mom, you CANNOT take away someone’s child (not to talk of travelling to another country), without the person’s knowledge. Full story or not. One can go to jail for it, if one lives in a developed country. It’s very stupid to say the least. So it irks me when people say “this isn’t the full story”. Do not take away someone’s child without the person’s permission, period. Most of you commenting aren’t Mothers that’s why some of you don’t understand.

      Maybe he was the “link” that help get the girl back. You know as the mama talk say the grand ma no get link. Maybe that’s her own link.

    Aww… sat at the back of this girl and her grandma on d flight from PH to Lag..and the girl was just adorable…seeing that they were the people involved in this kidnap case, and they have found her makes me feel happier… thnk God the baby didn’t come to any harm

    @freethinker…it sad that thinkers like you still abound in Nigeria. My own mother has no right to take my child away like that ; not to think of someone who didn’t even marry me. Grand parents are secondary care givers. They should make decisions for a child if the parents are late or lack capacity. Otherwise discuss it with the parents and get their consent.
    Am glad they found the girl.

    I understand her plight and sympathize with her, I will not pretend to understand the pain she has had to endure nevertheless, I am just a little worried about the lady’s last tweet. Being nice to people is not a bad thing and for her to say she will teach her little girl that bothers me. I am not trying to play judge here just saying it bothers me. Yes, we should apply wisdom with who ever we choose to bring not only into our lives but those we choose to introduce to our kids as well, but to teach a child not to be nice to people, that is a scary thought

    You see the Nigerian woman’s worst enemy is another Naija woman. Imagine some on here saying, no one knows the full story or a Grandmother can not kidnap a child. IT IS NOT HER CHILD. Please women, there are parts of our culture we have done away with…that nonsense about someone else owning your child is dead…dead and gone. We need to stop allowing ourselves to be enslaved. This girl has been caring for this child for 2 years and some lady brings her face to take the child away on the grounds that she is your son’s child? Where is your son? Why does he not have the sense to make a relationship work with the child. If the Gma could stay for 5 months with the lady, I am sure the mother is not a monster. So please all these small boys that hide behind their mama’s aprons need to leave parenting to those that can.

    i am so so happy for the lady o. congrats to her.
    i believe that she has learnt her lessons now never to trust people no matter how close they are to you, always give room for disappointments in every relationship so that the heartbreak wont be much.
    once more i say congrats Temmy.
    Bella Naija ur too much more grace and strength to carry on.
