The Lagos state police command has arrested 42 year old Mrs Nimotu Raheem pictured above for allegedly kidnapping three children, a 4 year old set of twin Taiye and Kehinde, and a 16-month old boy, Fatai Adeola. at an Arabic School in Itire-Ikate, Surulere, Lagos yesterday September 17th.
According to a report by The Nation , the Lagos state police commissioner, Fatai Owoseni while parading her, said the suspect accosted the mother of the three children along the road and demanded that she hands her children to her.
“It was another woman who saw the manner the suspect demanded for the child and the mother gave the child out without any resistance or questions that now raised alarm. For the quick intervention of the police from Itire, the suspect would have been mobbed. At first, the suspect acted like a dumb person but after some tactics used on her by our operative, she started talking. We also got information that she has mental problem. All that she has said so far is useful to our investigation,’’ he said.
Owoseni admonished parents to be vigilant regarding their children. He said further investigation into the matter is ongoing.
