How 12-year-old girl ‘kidnapped’ in Lagos was found in Ogun



Faith Ayeh, who was allegedly kidnapped by her parents’ maid, Mary, in the Iju Ishaga area of Lagos State, has been found.

Saturday PUNCH learnt the victim was found in Abeokuta, Ogun State by a man, who had read about their situation.The resident was said to have called Faith’s parents, who then raced to the area to bring her home.

Mary was employed by the Ghanaian family about five months ago to assist with house chores at their home on Kudirat Abiola Estate, Akute Road, Iju Ishaga.

She was also reported to be assisting the mother of the house, Glory, with her frozen foods business on the street.However, the suspect allegedly went out with the victim last Thursday, claiming Glory sent them on errands when she was challenged by the family driver.

Their whereabouts had remained unknown since then.

Faith’s father, Paul, told Saturday PUNCH that his daughter was found by a man who read the report.

He said,

“The man called us that he found my daughter on the road. He said he saw her picture in your  newspaper and he got my number to call us so we could come and take her.
“My wife said she would go and we had to get some policemen to follow her there. The police were able to arrest two suspects and the case was taken to Abeokuta, before it was transferred to the anti-kidnapping section of the Surulere Police Division.”

Asked if the maid had been arrested and what the daughter said, he said his daughter and wife were on their way home, adding that he would call back as soon as they reached the house.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, said it was a case of absconding, adding that Faith fled her parents’ home on her own volition.

She said,

“What happened was that the girl, Faith, claimed that her mother was too harsh on her and she decided to run away with the housemaid, who was eloping with her boyfriend. When they got to Abeokuta, the home of the boyfriend, the man decided to habour the two of them. It was there that he was sleeping with the maid, Mary, who had equally been declared missing by her parents.
“The boyfriend, however, started having an affair with Faith as well, which got the maid jealous. As a way of revenging, she decided to call Faith’s parents to tell them their whereabouts. That was how the secret was leaked. The matter is under investigation.”

    For the fact that your mother is harsh is not enough reason for you to run away from home. When i was growing up, my mother was very strict with me that i began to wonder if she was really my real mother but now that am older, i have appreciated that treatment

    Most especially in Africa, we always cut the head off in our quest to cure headache, the reason for many our children running away from home. Some mothers are too harsh on their children, they always flare up on a very little provocation, cursing them, giving them different names, they even a time bound them from coming home. Treat your children with mildness, please.

    What are u people saying? Will a mother kill her own daughter? How harsh can she be? The child is spoilt and that’s what her mum saw that made her harsh towards her
