Nigerian Rwandan School Kids Kidnapped By Nanny In Gbagada Lagos Found In Benin Republic

The Lagos Police has found two children, 6-year-old Nadia Mutana, and 3-year-old Khalifa Mutana (Nigerians of Rwandan descent) who were allegedly abducted from school last week Monday by their nanny.

The children were said to have been found in a location near the Seme Border in Benin Republic in the early hours of Sunday.

The Police Public Relations Officer for the state, Chike Oti, said in a statement that investigation revealed that their babysitter, Busayo was a member of a kidnap syndicate, who gave her out as a domestic help to unsuspecting parents.

He added that when she finally got a job with the Mutanas, she warmed her way into the children’s hearts and won the trust of her employers, which enabled her to carry out the kidnap.

Oti state:

“The Lagos State Police Command wishes to inform the general public that the two children of Mr and Mrs Aneru Mutana of Gbagada Phase 2, Lagos, kidnapped on November 26, 2018 by their domestic help, simply identified as Busayo, were found today, December 2, 2018, in the early hours at a location close to the Seme Border in Benin Republic.

“The said Busayo was on November 26, 2018, instructed by Mrs Mutana to go and pick the children from school and take them home as she (Mrs Mutana) wasn’t able to do so due to the nature of her job.

“Unfortunately for the madam, the domestic help had carefully planned how to kidnap her children, a six-year-old boy and a three-year-old girl, and executed her wicked plan effortlessly, because she was known to the school authorities and was familiar with the children.

“Investigation so far revealed that Busayo is a member of a kidnap syndicate, who gives her out as a domestic help to unsuspecting parents.

“When she finally landed the job, she wormed her way into the children’s heart and won the trust of her employers. Once she got to this stage, she bared her teeth.”

According to him, the Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, warned households interested in engaging the services of domestic helps to beware of whom they were dealing with.

He added that the commissioner reiterated his earlier warning that employers ought to carry out thorough background checks on persons they were bringing to their homes and profile them in order to make investigation easy for the police should the need arose.

“The command reasonably believes that Busayo may not be her real name. However, it wishes that Nigerians should take cognizance of her face and alert the nearest police formation of her location and if possible, arrest and hand her over to the police,” Oti added

The evil nanny was hired a week before the abduction took place.

The children have been reunited with their parents.

    Pls tell me they have broken the nanny’s legs. Dont tell me she is still walking. Domestic helps are now the new way to make people cry! Nigerians beware. If you can manage in anyway, dont even bother hiring them. This is one hell of a kidnap too many.

    first of all,the woman is a disgrace..what kind of work will u do not to have time to pick your kids and the same when to get home to make food for your hubby.Even in abroad,parents go for school run or have a school bus drop off kids at home while parents wait to pick them up.its your responsiblity work it out with the school if unable to meet up..most places have extension time or surcharge u if u delay to come on time.we even have day care center since your billion dollar job wont let u pick up your kids.
    we are becoming too lazy in this era,cook,nanny,gardner,gate man all in the name of busy.
    again,francophone migrants have invaded our nation,enter obalende,ikoyi and beyond.they even speak pidgin pass you and u hardly know their real names.make we shine our eyes.

      @Iron Bar, our people like to show they are big men and big madam. Like you correctly said in abroad parents go for school run, they don’t leave for work until the school bus comes to pick up their kids and made sure the bus brings them back. I bet you if you relocate some Nigerian women abroad back to Nigeria, they will still behave like big madams. I don’t know if it is showmanship or in the gene.
