PUNCH reports that they were found in the Sagamu area of Ogun State were they were abandoned near the Sagamu Police Station on Thursday.

However, no arrest has been made in connection with the abduction.


It was gathered that passersby in the area alerted the police to the presence of the children.

The 25-year-old housemaid, who was employed about a week ago through a online portal  OLX, sneaked the children out of their parents’ house on Gateway Crescent in the Magodo, Isheri area of Lagos State on Sunday when their parents went out for a shopping.

It became apparent that Juliet had abducted the kids when Onajite and her husband, Elvis, returned from their outing around 9pm and observed that the house was unusually quiet.

The kids’ parents could not be reached for comments on Thursday as calls made to their telephones rang out.

However, an uncle of the children, Mr. Darlington Abuda, told PUNCH Metro that the mother was busy attending to the kids – one of whom was said to be traumatised.

Abuda said the children would be taken to a hospital for medical examination, adding that the whole family was revelling in the euphoria of the kids’ rescue.
