Woman allegedly kidnapped two minors who are children of her landlord and neighbour in the Sango Ota area of Ogun State.

The woman is said to be a new tenant who moved into the apartment just three days before the incident occurred.

The incident was confirmed to the men of the press by the command’s Public Relations Officer, Omolola Odutola.

Odutola told our correspondent that the landlord, Johnson Oshinowo, reported that a woman whom he rented his apartment to on December 7, 2023 abducted his son and another neighbour’s son, who were both four years old.

He claimed that the woman who had just spent three days at the apartment has no known identity as the landlord and the house agent did not conduct a profile check before renting the apartment to her.

She 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 added that the Commissioner of Police, CP Abiodun Alamutu, has directed a discrete investigation into the abduction to ensure that the suspect was tracked down.

“The CP has directed a discrete investigation and urged operatives to intensify their efforts to track down the suspect and rescue the children,” Odutola concluded.

As at the time of reporting this news, no positive information as regarding her whereabouts were recorded.
