Nanny who kidnapped Lagos children demands N15m ransom

Report gathered that a nanny, Mary Akinloye, who allegedly kidnapped three kids in the Surulere area of Lagos State has demanded N15m from the victim’s parents.
It was learnt by repoters that the family was contacted on Thursday by the suspect and others, who were suspected to be members of her group. They were said to have demanded the N15m as ransom.
Newsmen had reported on Wednesday that the Orekoya family had posted information on OLX, an online sales portal, seeking the service of a nanny.
It was also gathered that Akinloye indicated interest and gave the Orekoyas the contacts of two people who she said were her relatives.
It was reported that the family agreed to formalilse documentation with the purported relatives before the week ran out.
After the 23-year-old resumed for work on Tuesday, she was said to have taken the three children ─ Aderomola (11 months old), Adedamola (4 years old), Demola (6 years old) ─ out, while their parents were away.
A family friend, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said the kidnappers contacted the family and demanded N15m on Thursday.
The information was confirmed by another friend who put up the post on a social medium, Facebook.
He said, “Is it a crime to employ a house help? The kidnappers have demanded N15m.”
Efforts to reach the family were abortive as they continued to reject calls made to their lines.
They also did not reply to three text messages sent to them on the matter.
The Police Public Relations, Kenneth Nwosu, said investigations were on.
