SO SAD! Woman Disappears With Four Kids Within 30mins Of Starting Her Job As An Assistant Teacher

The 33-year-old proprietress of a neighbourhood home
lesson at Idi-Omo area of Ibadan, Oyo State, Mrs Kafayat
Olatubosun, has described the incident which led to the
disappearance of four pupils in her care as one that is like a
devil stalking her, after which he crept in and struck.
A woman simply identified as eleha (woman in purdah)
disappeared with the kids on Tuesday, November 18,
2014. The children are yet to be found till the writing of
this report
The four missing children, whose names were given as
Abdulsalam Aderibigbe, Abigail Adegunju, Chidiebere
and Onyiyechukwu were reportedly taken away by the
eleha who disguised as someone in need of an
employment. She struck within 30 minutes of starting her
job as a lesson assistant.
According to Mrs Olatunbosun who is nursing a 14-
month-old baby and is currently kept in protective
custody at State Criminal Investigation, Iyaganku, Ibadan,
"I started operating a neighbourhood lesson for children at
Sagbolada Compound, Idi Omo, Ibadan in 2009. I rented a
space in the compound and I pay N500 monthly for it.
"I have about 35 pupils between the ages of one-and-half
and three. Sometimes, primary school pupils sent home
from their schools because of non-payment of fees are
brought by their parents so that there would be no vacuum
in their academic lives. I collect N20 daily for each child
and the lesson hours are between 8a.m. and 1p.m."
The National Teachers Institution (NTI) certificate holder
and mother of three spoke further: "I had been working
alone all the years, with regular assistance from my
husband and a few elderly women staying within and
around the lesson.
"Whenever I wanted to move round to pick children from
their homes, my husband would stay with the ones already
in class. Same would happen in the afternoon until the last
child had been taken home. Whenever he was busy in the
shop where he works as a lotto agent, the women who were
like my in-laws would assist me.
"The woman who did this evil work (kidnapping) had
been coming when I was still pregnant with the 14-month-
old baby I am nursing. She kept pestering me that she
wanted to work with me but I told her that I did not need
"About a month after I resumed work, having spent 41
days at home after delivery, she came again and I still
insisted that I did not need an assistant. She told me that
she wanted to leave where she was working because she
was being owed salary. I replied that I would not a similar
situation to occur in our relationship because the children
were enough to take care of my own needs.
"I told her that I would like to inform my husband which I
did by calling him. But he could not come because he was
busy in his office. The woman told me she would come
back the following day. The following morning, when I
got to the lesson, at a little after 8a.m., I met the woman
waiting for me.
"Shortly after, my husband came and saw her too. I said I
would be paying her N3,000 monthly and she agreed. My
husband left for his office and I decided to make the
rounds to pick my pupils.
"I went the first round to pick the children and I met the
lady on my return. I went the second round and still met
her. Even some parents who brought their children
themselves saw her.
"It was on my return after the third round that she was no
longer around. I also noticed that one of the children,
Abdusalam, was missing. I shouted and the elderly women
around came.
I quickly called my husband on the phone and he came. I
met one of the parents who just brought her child in and
she said she did not meet anyone.
That was how we noticed that Abigail, Samson,
Chidiebere and Onyiyechukwu were also missing. The
last two children are siblings Samson, who is three years
old later walked back to us."
When asked if she could identify the woman, Mrs
Olatunbosun replied that she could.
Crime Reports learnt that the Idi Omo neighbourhood was
immediately thrown into confusion as residents, especially
the youths and parents of the missing pupils, started
searching for the woman and the children.
The mother of two of the missing children who are sisters
was reported to have collapsed immediately and had since
been on admission. The older of her two kids is three.
But the police image maker in Oyo State, Olabisi
Okuwobi-Ilobanafor said that Commissioner of Police,
Kola Shodipo has put his men on their toes to unravel the
identity of the woman, with a view to arresting her.
