It has just been brought to my notice that a 2 and half year old and 15months old children, Rafael and Michael, were abducted from their home in Isheri Magodo Estate, Lagos last night by their maid.
The children’s parents, who had to go out briefly, left the kids in the care of the maid, while their sick grandmum was being looked after by her nurse.
The maid waited for the grand mum and nurse to sleep before taking the kids away! By the time both parents returned home, the maid and the kids were no where to be found.
All efforts to reach the maid by phone has proved abortive. And the agency that brought the maid also can’t reach her. Please anyone with any information that could help with finding these children, contact Darlington on 08037071370 or the nearest police station.
*God please show please give we parents direction! Is there another way of minding one’s kids. Because it seems as if ‘armed robbers’ are coming in different forms.
That’s how the other day, I sent word out that I needed a maid. Only for me to get to office to see a supposedly clean young man in white guinea brocade, waiting for me. I asked, ” Excuse me, how may I help you?” .
“I came because I heard you need a maid. I came to apply ma”, the young man replied with so much confidence.
I didn’t even know when I looked at him from head to toe and of course gave my answer immediately, “No, I’m sorry you must have been misinformed!”
“Okay ma. Thank you ma” and he left.
I just shook my head and thought, this one is obviously an armed robber, that will show his true colours on the first day! May God protect us from evil people. Amen.
