5 months after resuming, 12-yr-old Nigerian housemaid, disappears with Ghanaian family’s daughter
Mary, a 12-year-old housemaid, has disappeared with her boss daughter, Faith Ayeh, at Kudirat Abiola Estate, Akute Road, Iju Ishaga, Lagos State. Mary had been employed by the family through an agent about five months ago.
Mary was said to be working directly with the woman of the house, Mrs. Glory Ayeh, who had a frozen foods shop on the street. However, the suspect reportedly went out with the victim last Thursday, and their whereabouts had remained unknown.
Faith’s father, Paul, said, “My family needed a house help and one of my wife’s friends arranged one for us. She brought Mary to my family about five months ago. She is the same age with my daughter.
I was told that last Thursday, Mary disappeared from the house with my daughter. Our driver said he saw them with a bag. He said when he queried them, Mary answered that my wife asked them to take the bag to her shop.
Since then, we have not heard anything.” He said the matter, which was reported at the Iju Ishaga Police Division, had been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Yaba.
Paul said the agent who brought the suspect to the family had been arrested and assisting the police with investigations. The suspect, who hails from Benue State, was staying with her parents in Ibadan, Oyo State, before her employment.
