Househelp who fled with her madam’s son in Lagos arrested in Ogun.

A 14 year old househelp, Favour Iwuozor, was on 3rd of January 2022, nabbed by men of the Ogun state police command for abducting her boss’s 2 years old son.

On December 31, 2021, it was reported of how the suspect fled with the victim on December 19. Moses Otojareri, the father of the victim who spoke to LIB revealed that the suspect who was employed in the second week in November, fled with his son.

According to Moses, the suspect attended a church service with his wife and their two children. His wife however received a call from one of her customers and she left the suspect and her children in church, instructing Favour to ensure they all return to her shop after the church service. Favour however fled with their son.

In an update on Tuesday morning, January 4th, spokesperson of the Ogun state police command, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the suspect was arrested following a complaint lodged at Sagamu divisional headquarters by one Victoria Nwafor, who reported that she saw a 14 year old girl on the 22nd of December 2021, with a very sick two year old boy in Yaba Lagos.

She went on to reveal that the little girl was begging for alms under the pretense that the small boy is her younger brother and that their parents died in an accident in December 2020.

Out of compassion, the woman took both of them to her house in Sagamu in order to take care of the little boy’s deteriorating health condition.

But immediately the boy fully recovered, the suspect wanted to single-handedly take the boy to Imo state. This aroused the woman’s suspicion, hence her report.

Upon the report, the Dpo Sagamu division, CSP okiki Agunbiade detailed his detectives to go and bring the girl and the little boy.

On interrogation, the girl confessed that she was a maid to the mother of the little boy, and that she left with the boy since on the 19th of December 2021, with the intention of taking the boy to Amraku Umorsu in Isiala/Mberna local government area of Imo state.

Davido’s N250m gift to orphans: Arewa seeks transparency

Arewa Youths Trust Foundation (AYTF) has urged the committee disbursing the N250 million donated by music act David Adeleke (Davido) to orphanage homes to show integrity and be fair in the distribution.

In a rare humanitarian gesture to mark his 29th birthday, #Davido decided to give the N201 million from his crowdfunding appeal to fans and fellow musicians to charity.

Davido, who, in three days, got N201 million from friends and well-wishers, added N50 million of his own and said he intended to give all the money to the less privileged.

AYTF urged the singer to keep the committee in check and ensure effective distribution, especially in the northern parts of the country where there were large numbers of orphans and vulnerable households.

It said N251 million if shared judiciously, would ameliorate and suppress the plight and suffering of selected orphans across the country.
