Two siblings based in Lagos have been rescued following their abduction allegedly by a nanny simply identified by Precious.
Precious was said to have absconded with the minors – a four-year-old boy and two-year-old girl – on Monday and brought them to Benin City to a couple based abroad who were on a visit to Nigeria.
The Police Public Relations Officer in Edo, Bello Kontongs, disclosed this on Saturday in the Edo State capital.
“Operatives of the Anti-Kidnapping and Cybercrime Unit on 26 at about 15:35 hours arrested some suspects for the abduction of children from Lagos down to Benin City,” he said.
“The principal suspect is believed to be the nanny – or what we normally call house help – of the children of Mr Ibe whom she has been staying with his family and taking care of the children.
“Using her familiarity with the children, she decided to allow the devil to take the better part of her by abducting these two children … of the same father and ran down to Benin City to meet one lady – Biva Idaho, 35, who is also suspected to be the receiver and her husband, Joseph Obaze, 45, at a remote area along Ekenwan Road.”
