A nanny, Mary Akinloye, who allegedly kidnapped three kids in the Surulere area of Lagos State has demanded N15m as ransom for the children.
The family was contacted on Thursday 9th of April by some suspects demanding 15m before the kids will be released.
The Orekoya’s family whose children were abducted were said to have applied on OLX an online sales portal seeking the services of a nanny, Akinloye had applied and gave two contacts which she said were her relatives.
It was reported that the 23 year old girl resumed work on Tuesday and took the kids out that same day and had not returned. The Orekoya’s who were to finalised their documentation with the nanny’s family this week had called the numbers she gave and they calls were rejected severally and also had not received replies to text messages sent.
The Police Public Relations, Kenneth Nwosu, said investigations were on.
He said, “Investigations are on and that is all I can say for now.
“There are things you do that can jeopardise investigation.
“What is important in a case like this is to ensure that the children are returned hale and hearty. There are information you may have and if you disclose it, you could break the line of communication. So, we are still on the matter to ensure the safe return of the kids.
