July 12, 2016 – Pictures: Female Kidnapper From Benin Republic Arrested In Okokomaiko Lagos Says 27 Kidnappers Were Sent To Nigeria To Kidnap Children
A middle-age woman from Benin Republic escaped death by a whisker yesterday after two women accused her of being a kidnapper.
The lady who disguised as a mad woman was found wandering around Okokomaiko around 8am yesterday.
After noticing her suspicious movement in the community plagued with frequent cases of missing children, she was confronted and when she couldn’t give a satisfactory answer, the youths descended on her.
She was beaten to stupor before she allegedly confessed that she and 26 other women were sent to Nigeria from The Republic of Benin to kidnap children.
She added that each of them were given 5 phone numbers to contact their buyers once they succeeded in kidnapping children.
“The suspected kidnapper almost threw her phone away after she was caught by the mob to avoid detection,” a witness, who pleaded anonymity, said.
She was rescued by police the moment tyre was placed around her body yesterday.
The Beninese woman has been transferred to SCID Panti Yaba for investigation.
