ACP Abayomi Shogunle who is in charge of  Public Complaint Rapid Response Unit of the Nigeria Police force, confirmed the report and stated that the Mother and 4-year-old daughter were reunited after the little girl was forcefully taken to Kaduna.

Read full statement below:

On the 5th of December, 2018 at about 11:00am one Ms. B (full name withheld due to privacy of her infant daughter) came to the PCRRU and narrated how her little daughter was forcefully taken away from her by the family of her estranged boyfriend and father of the little girl who has since relocated to South Africa. During the process of this traumatic ordeal in 2016, the said family boasted that she will never be allowed access to her daughter again, after which her daughter was taken to Kaduna, Kaduna state to stay with the grandmother. She also stated that all efforts made to see her daughter proved abortive as she was threatened with violence. That she has also reported the matter to various authorities but no positive response received.

Her complaint was recorded as a distress call and Tracking No. #PCRRU931805 issued. The case was immediately forwarded to the Officer-in-Charge of Juvenile and Women Centre (JWC) of the Kaduna State Police Command to investigate and ensure a decision is taken in the best interest of the girl without further delay. Within five days, the JWC was able to bring all the parties together during which it was discovered that the little girl was more interested in being with her biological mother and not her grandmother. Advise was also sought from relevant experts and it was decided that this 4-year-old girl be released to her biological mother considering the fact that her father has relocated from Nigeria as Ms. B was also discovered to be a responsible and working class woman.

On 12.12.2018 (exactly one week after the complaint was received), an elated Ms. B visited the PCRRU, Force Headquarters, Abuja in company of her little daughter to express her joy and happiness over the swift response of the Unit in “helping her to get justice and helping the helpless people in the society”. She also thanked and prayed for the Inspector-General of Police, IGP Ibrahim Idris, NPM, mni and the entire officers and men of the Nigeria Police Force regarding the good work they are doing across the country.
