Tenant Suspected to Have Kidnapped Landlord’s, Neighbour’s Children

In the Sango Ota neighbourhood of Ogun State, an unidentified woman has been accused of kidnapping two minors who are the children of her landlord and her neighbour.

Three days after moving into the apartment, the woman and the two children were reported to have gone missing.

This was made known to News Agencies on Wednesday, December 13, 2023, by Omolola Odutola, after the occurrence of the incident the same day.

According to Odutola, the Landlord, Johnson Oshinowo, said that on December 7, 2023, a woman he rented his flat apartment kidnapped both his four-year-old son and the youngster of a neighbour.

The Landlord claims that the house agent failed to perform a background check on the woman who had just moved into the flat.

Odutola said, “On December 12, 2023, at about 0835hrs, a landlord informed the police that he rented a room apartment to a woman on December, 7 and on December 11, the woman abducted his son and his neighbour’s son without any trace of their destination.

“Immediately the report was received, detectives swung into action and visited the scene to conduct preliminary inquiries.”

“From the preliminary investigation, it was gathered by the detectives that the woman had only spent three days in the rented house without any known background information. It was also gathered that the landlord and house agent have no profile of the suspect.”

She further revealed that in order to make sure the culprit was found, CP Abiodun Alamutu, the Commissioner of Police, had ordered a separate inquiry into the kidnapping.
