A middle-aged woman, simply identified as Aminat Akanni has been arrested for reportedly abducting two of her step-children, killing one of them and pushing her into a soak-away pit.

Reason for her action was because her husband refused to provide Sallah clothes for her own son.

Punch Metro reports that Aminat was arrested by the police at CMS Bus Stop, Lagos Island, on October 9.

Report has it that before her arrest, seven-year-old Lateef and four-year-old Nofisat had been declared missing on Friday, October 3, a day to the Sallah celebration.

It was gathered that the father of the missing children, Moshood Mubo, who is also the suspect’s husband, had tabled the case before Adeniji Adele Police Division on Friday, October 3.

Moshood, a native of Ilorin, Kwara State, said his second wife, who he rented an apartment for in the Orile area, abducted the kids, claiming that she wanted to “punish him for not buying Sallah clothes for her own son.”

He said, “I married Aminat in 2010. In order to avoid a crisis at home, I rented an apartment for her at Mosalashi Street, Alakara in Orile. She has only one son for me. His name is Yusuf. She does not come to Church Street, Lagos Island where I live with my first wife.

“What happened was that on the evening of Friday, October 3, when I returned from work- just a day to the Sallah celebrations- I sent the two children to go buy biscuits in front of the street. That was around 7pm. We expected them till around 9pm. I was shocked. I quickly rushed to the Adeniji Adele Police Division, and reported the incident.

“Believe me, I and their mother, Funmilayo, could not sleep all through that night. We were walking around throughout the night from one police division to the other, repeating the same thing. The whole Sallah celebration was a sad one as I looked for my two children. Little did I know that it was my second wife who sneaked into our area to abduct them.”

He added, “The following morning, around 11am, Aminat called me and heard me crying on the phone. I told her that we were looking for Lateef and Nofisat, she simply said, ‘All I know is that no one can kidnap my own son.’ I was shocked at her statement, but I never thought she was the one behind the whole trouble.

“It was six days later when the police arrested her that she then confessed that she committed the act because she claimed I was not taking care of her, and that I had not bought sallah clothes for her son, which is not true. She had sneaked to our area, and asked the two kids to follow her to Orile. This is unimaginable for me.”
