A three-year-old boy, Master Olarenwaju Obazua, has been abducted from his father’s compound while playing with other children. Olarenwaju was abducted by about 6:30 pm on November 21 at No. 5, John Ladipo Street, Ajegunle in Apapa area of Lagos State. The victim’s mother, Mrs Maria Obazua, said the family had been facing emotional distress since the only son among three siblings was kidnapped.

She said: “It was around 6:30 pm on Saturday, Olarenwaju was playing with other children in front of our compound.

After a while, I went to check him but he was nowhere to be found, that was how we started looking for him since that day.” The mother of three said the family had not received any call from the abductors since then.
She added: “His father has reported the case at the police station at Trinity and Area ‘B’ Command, Apapa. We have placed his pictures at different police stations, seeking information concerning his whereabouts, but till today we have had no response.” One of the neighbours, who identified herself as Nkechi, recounted the ordeal of the victims’ parents.

She said: “If the abductors had contacted the parents, we would have known what they wanted. Nobody has been contacted. The kidnappers should consider the plight of the child and the emotional trauma the family has been going through and set him free.” Olarenwaju was said to be a pupil at Pricilla Nursery and Primary School, Ajegunle.

When contacted on the phone, state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Joseph Offor, said he would find out. Offor later said the DPO in charge of Ajegunle said the matter was not reported.
