Father And His 22-Year-Old Daughter Arrested Over Alleged Abduction Of Toddlers
A Nigerian man identified as Ilesanmi Omoniyi and his 22-year-old daughter, Adeola Omoniyi have reportedly been apprehended by the police over the alleged kidnapping of children.
This comes after the young girl revealed how much she was being paid by her father after every mission she embarks on to bring him a child for reasons we are yet to find out.
The state police command in Akure, the capital of Ondo state, paraded Adeola, who is infamous for kidnapping young children in localities there. The suspect said it was her third mission when she was stopped at Ore in the state’s Odigbo Council area.
Upon interrogation, she said; ”I’m a kidnapper. I do kidnap little children and I always deliver them to my father in his house at Igbotako. I was successful with the first two children I took but I was caught with the third one. After delivering the kids to my father, he would give me N30K for each operation. I do use the money to take care of myself. I don’t know what he normally used the children for. All I do is to take them to him.
He told me to always bring the children to him. I picked the first child from Ilutitun and the second from Ilowo. It was when I was taking the child away that the mother raised alarm. People gathered to beat me and I was taken to the police station before I was moved to Akure.
“I have been doing the business for about two years. The first one was in 2021 and the second one this year. I always ask the children when they are alone that where are they going and I hold their hand and they will follow me,” she further confessed.
Meanwhile, Ilesanmi Omoniyi, the father of the suspect upon interrogation denied all these allegations and his involvement in the crimes his daughter is being accused of, claiming that his daughter is mentally retarded.
“My daughter used to stay in Lagos. She stayed about two years in Lagos. She got sick and they brought her to me in Igbotako. She was stark naked when they brought her to me. I later took her to a church where the pastor said I should pay N80K. I sold my cassava and I paid the pastor. He later told me that she is better but few days after he called again that he could not find her as she had left the church“, he said.
He also added that he knows nothing about the crime and had never tasked his daughter to bring him children, adding that it’s been six months his daughter went missing from the church and he has tried his best to look for her until he heard that she has been arrested for stealing a child.
