The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr Kayde Aderanti, on Thursday confirmed the arrest of the lady behind the kidnap of three children of the Orekoya family within the ages of 6, 4 and 11 months.
The three missing children of the Orekoya family were kidnapped by their nanny, Mary Akinloye, in Lagos State.
Akinloye was said to have been hired through an online trading portal.
In an interview with Channels Television, police sources revealed that the kidnappers, faced by immense pressure the incident had generated, abandoned the children in Shasha Area of Lagos State, Nigeria’s south-west region.
The children were immediately taken to an anonymous hospital for observation and are in the process of being re-united with their parents.
The kids between the ages of 6, 4 and 11 months old were abducted by the housemaid on April 8, a day into her job as the family maid.
She, as well as her accomplices, contacted the children’s’ parents and demanded a N15m ransom.
