12-yr-old girl declared missing in Lagos, found after snatching the boyfriend of their housemaid
Faith Ayeh, who was allegedly kidnapped by her parents’ maid, Mary (pictured), in Iju Ishaga, Lagos State, has been found in Abeokuta, Ogun State. Mary was employed by Faith’s parents, about five months ago to assist with house chores.
However, the suspect allegedly went out with the victim last Thursday, claiming Glory sent them on errands when she was challenged by the family driver. Their whereabouts had remained unknown since then.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, said it was a case of absconding, adding that Faith fled her parents’ home on her own volition.
She said, “What happened was that the girl, Faith, claimed that her mother was too harsh on her and she decided to run away with the housemaid, who was eloping with her boyfriend.
When they got to Abeokuta, the home of the boyfriend, the man decided to habour the two of them. It was there that he was sleeping with the maid, Mary, who had equally been declared missing by her parents.
The boyfriend, however, started having an affair with Faith as well, which got the maid jealous. As a way of revenging, she decided to call Faith’s parents to tell them their whereabouts. That was how the secret was leaked. The matter is under investigation.”
