Family panics as two children go missing in Lagos

Two children, Amirat Adeniji and Kadijat have reportedly gone missing in the Ajegunle area of Lagos State with the family suspecting kidnap

Amirat’s father, Rasheed Adeniji, who spoke with Punch Metro on Monday said the children went missing on New Year’s Eve at their residence at Mobil Road, Ajegunle-Apapa, Lagos.

He said the children were last seen by a yet-to-be-identified resident who learnt they were going to buy biscuits but were not seen afterwards.

Adeniji said, “The children were playing in the passage. The person who saw them last said they were holding N50 notes that they wanted to go and buy biscuits and he told them to go back. My wife said she did not know who gave them money to buy biscuits. I don’t understand. We haven’t seen them since then. One of them is the child of my neighbour. She’s just going to two years old.

“I’m appealing to Nigerians who may know the children’s whereabouts to please come to our aid. They were (probably) kidnapped.”

He added, “We have not seen them. We have been to several police stations.”

Adeniji’s brother, Lukman, said he heard another boy went missing in the area on Monday after the two children were missing.
