Police in Ekiti arrest lady for attempting to kidnap 3 school children


There was great pandemonium in Ado Ekiti when a strange woman identified as Kazeem Tawa, attempted to kidnap three school children who were returning from school.

Newsmen reported that the incident occurred on Thursday around 2:20 pm around INEC Office, Bank road, Ado Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital.

It was gathered that the residents of the area raised the alarm when the woman attempted to abduct the three school children.

The woman pleaded with their children to help her carry her bag containing some items to an unknown destination.

The children refused initially but after a few moments of chatting with the woman, they became unconscious and started following the woman with her bag.

It took the quick intervention of some mechanics around who noticed their suspicious movement to stop them. When asked about the children, she claimed that the children belong to her. But the scenario changed immediately when the children countered her that she was not their mother.

The charm, soft drinks, oranges, drugs, adult/children’s slippers, fresh Banana, Maggi, Garri, clothes, INEC jackets, and others were found from the woman’s bag.

Meanwhile, the Ekiti State Police Command has confirmed the incident.

A statement by the Public Relations Officer of the command, Mr Sunday Abutu affirmed that the woman has been arrested.
