Even teenagers are been coopted into this ‘kidnapping’ business!

A teenager, Racheal John, and Joy Atunramu, 9, have been arrested by the Ogun State Police Command for allegedly kidnapping their neighbour’s nine-month-old baby.

The suspects were arrested on Wednesday by detectives attached to the Ilese Police Division, Ijebu Ode.

The baby was said to have been taken from the mother’s shop at the Old Toll gate area of the town by Atunramu, allegedly acting on the instruction of John.

The state police spokesman, Muyiwa Adejobi, said the police swung into action after the mother of the baby rushed to the police station to make a complaint about the incident.

Adejobi, a Deputy Superintendent of Police, said, John was later arrested with the baby at the Ogbere area of Ijebu.

He said, “Investigation revealed that the suspect had a conflict with the mother of the baby before the baby was stolen.

“She vowed via a written letter to deal with the mother of the baby.

“The mother did not know who actually stole the baby, but neighbours and some eyewitnesses, who saw the suspect with the baby ─ who was stolen by Atunramu on the instruction of the first suspect, John ─ intimated the mother and the police detectives before the arrest of the suspects.

“It was also gathered that the suspect (John) allegedly demanded the sum of N2m as ransom before she would release the baby.” – PUNCH


Oluwabunmi Ajelero

Thank God…the 3 year old female child, Oluwabunmi Ajelero, that was apparently kidnapped on Sunday on the premises of Surulere Baptist Church in Ojuelegba, Lagos, was rescued in another church in Abeokuta, Ogun State. The police spokesman, Muyiwa Adejobi, on Tuesday said the victim attracted attention after she started crying in a church in the Oke Sokori area of Abeokuta on Sunday evening.

This kidnap happened not too long after the ‘Orekoya Boys’ were kidnapped too.

The fools asked for a ransom of about N300,000 but it was never paid and instead, the girl was seen with a note which had the Lagos pastor’s telephone number, so that it would be easy to locate her parents after the criminals’ transaction with her family.

I want to take time to appreciate all our prayer warriors, both man and woman, for taking time out to pray against the works of the enemy. Even if you didn’t pray for the safety of these kids, not to worry, this kind of ‘evil’ will never visit you and yours in Jesus name.



I needed to confirm the gist first…and it’s true…Yay!! The Orekoya kids have been found…without their parents paying a dime. 

Now, how they were found, to me isn’t that important. I just praise God that they were found. Imagine the immense trauma, these kids’ parents must have passed through. 

I pray for God’s guidance upon our families in Jesus name. Amen

*Still on vacation though…explanation for my huge MIA*



Should I be worried now? Should I really be worried about whom I employ to work in my home, at the risk of my family’s safety?

The growing fear among wives and mothers is fast becoming palpable. No matter the age of employment, they all seem to have one thing in common, if not more, which is “having an evil agenda” to either steal, kill, kidnap or infect. These agenda apparently seems to be increasing by the dozen.

Sadly, there’s no other means of finding out except to rely on your natural God-given instincts…or better still ‘spiritually-acquired’ instincts, which will probably depend on the level of your relationship with God.

I’ve not actually told you guys about the outcome of my maid, whom I went almost went ‘gaga’ over when I employed her. I will really tell you guys about, but not now…I’m still healing.

The government really has to step in and sort of create policies on a work-friendly conditions for career/ family-oriented women. Working hours should be reviewed, as well as create an environment where women can better monitor who cares for their children. I dunno but what do you guys think? because this problem is getting out of hand.

Just the other day, my younger sister called in sick at her office, just because her ‘trusted’ maid took off without any notice, leaving her stranded on a weekday! She had to use 3 days to sort herself out lest she lost the job she got! While my poor sister was fuming, I just quietly told her that we should even thank God she didn’t run off with the kids…that was a reality check!

I’m not sure if you guys have noticed, but when it becomes impossible for these maids’ agenda to be carried out, they just take off, without notice especially.

In the meantime, what do you guys think can be done about this problem? We can’t just fold our hands and be watching families be destroyed by these home invaders! How can be the problem of maid employment be better managed?

Ideas please…
