PUNCH Metro reports that Elo was with her family’s maid during the church’s children thanksgiving service last Sunday when she went missing.

The Personal Assistant to Elo’s father, Solo Cosmos, told Punch’s correspondent on the telephone that Elo’s parents were too distraught to speak.

Cosmos, however, said efforts to find her had been abortive, adding that the police had yet to have a clue on the whereabouts of the pupil.

He said,

“The family were all there at that thanksgiving service and Elo was with the maid, who took care of the three kids of the family.

“Cake was shared for the children during the thanksgiving service and the maid went to get the kids’ slices. But when she returned, she discovered that Elo was not on her seat again.

“We got information from a child that he saw Elo outside the tent where they had the children thanksgiving service. The kid said after Elo came out of the tent, a woman grabbed her hand and took her away.

“We immediately organised a search party but she was not found.”

He said the case was reported at the Alausa Police Station but was transferred to the Anti-Kidnapping Unit of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Yaba.

The Officer-in-Charge of the Anti-Kidnapping Unit, Bulus Musa, confirmed the incident, adding that it was a case of kidnapping.

He said,

“I am aware of the case and we are working on it. We are still investigating the case.”


  1. This is simple to solve. Pastor Chris claims all kinds of powers on TV. By now he should have made clear who stole the baby and where she has been taken.

    If that church has not the highest quality CCTV covering the premises, then something is wrong with Nigeria and religion. What perplexes me is, no matter how these Pastors are exposed as having no powers at all, Nigerians continue to believe them and throw their money to them enriching them the more.

    I just hope this little pretty girl is found intact
