Female kidnapper makes shocking confession in Lagos


A woman who pretended to be mad to kidnap a child has been caught at Aka Road, Okokomaiko area of Lagos on Monday, July 11.

The female kidnapper narrowly escaped being lynched by he crowd that gathered after she was caught.

According to her, she already had a ready buyer of the child she was about to kidnap when she was caught. She also said she was not alone in this nefarious activity.

“We were 27 women that came as a syndicate from Benin Republic. Each woman was given five phones to contact their buyers once the targets, mainly little children, were found. We then discard the phone after transactions to avoid been traced. The abduction is for outright sale, not for a ransom,”the mad woman said.

Few days ago in Okokomaiko, another female child abductor was apprehended after she successfully kidnapped a child and attempted to kidnap the second child before she was noticed.

Unfortunately, she could not produce the first child before she was whisked away by the police. Residents of Okomaiko blamed the police for not doing their duty.

A resident in the area, Omowummi Ireti, said: “In the last one year, the trend of women kidnapping children has been on the increase. “Fortunately, some of the women involved have been caught in recent times and they are always rescued from the mob and whisked away by the police. But the sad thing is that nothing is ever heard of the outcome again. “If the Nigerian Police is a serious outfit, one of such ‘arrests’ is enough lead to get to the root of this syndicate and crack it.”
