Police find 2 Lagos Children abducted by Nanny in Benin Republic | BellaNaija

The two children kidnapped by their nanny in Lagos, 6-year-old Nadia Mutana and 3-year-old Khalifa Mutana, have been found by the Lagos State Police Command.

The two kids, allegedly abducted by their nanny Busayo, were found close to the Seme Border in Benin Republic.

Punch reports that the police revealed in a statement that Busayo is part of a kidnap syndicate that gives out kidnappers in the form of domestic helps to unsuspecting parents.

The statement, given by the police PRO, Chike Oti, read:

The Lagos State Police Command wishes to inform the general public that the two children of Mr and Mrs Aneru Mutana of Gbagada Phase 2, Lagos, kidnapped on November 26, 2018 by their domestic help, simply identified as Busayo, were found today, December 2, 2018, in the early hours at a location close to the Seme Border in Benin Republic.

The said Busayo was on November 26, 2018, instructed by Mrs Mutana to go and pick the children from school and take them home as she (Mrs Mutana) wasn’t able to do so due to the nature of her job.

Unfortunately for the madam, the domestic help had carefully planned how to kidnap her children, a six-year-old boy and a three-year-old girl, and executed her wicked plan effortlessly, because she was known to the school authorities and was familiar with the children.

Investigation so far revealed that Busayo is a member of a kidnap syndicate, who gives her out as a domestic help to unsuspecting parents.

When she finally landed the job, she wormed her way into the children’s heart and won the trust of her employers. Once she got to this stage, she bared her teeth.

    Thumbs up to our police.
    We thank God for answered prayers.
    I know many people now realize security of children has to be stepped up.

    I’m curious- What do they do with the kidnapped kids? So they sell them to childless couples or do they demand for ransom? I don’t understand why people would travel all the way from Benin to Nigeria to kidnap.
