The Lagos State Police Command on Tuesday said it rescued two-year-old Roqibat Raji from kidnappers’ den at Odokekere in Ogun State.
The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Imohimi Edgal, disclosed this to newsmen.
Edgal said, “On June 22, one Aminat Abidoye of No.12, Kassim Adeboye St., Jerry Farm, Odongunyan, reported to the Police that her two-year-old daughter was missing.“Immediately, I ordered the anti-kidnap squad to deploy all its necessary assets in ensuring that the victim was rescued and the suspect arrested.
“The community policing structure, which had been put in place, led the Police to a village at Odokekere in Ogun State where the suspect, a woman, was arrested and little Roqibat rescued.
“The suspect confessed to the crime, saying that she committed the crime because her only child was taken away from her,” Edgal said.
The CP said that the victim has since been reunited with her parents and that the suspect would be charged to court.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the police boss had also paraded the 38-year-old suspected kidnapper.
