|The Orekoya Children|
Goodnews…Information reaching Alashock’s BLOG has it that the kidnapped children of the Orekoyas have been returned and reunited with their parents! A family friend of the Orekoyas, Dayo Adefila, confirmed this latest development on his facebook page moments ago.
The three children were said to have been dumped this evening [April 14] in a compound somewhere Akowonjo, Lagos. No one can say if any ransom was eventually paid, but the cheering news is that the Orekoya children are safe and sound.
It would be recalled, a nanny, Mary Akinloye, last week Tuesday [April 7] kidnapped the three kids in the Surulere area of Lagos State. She later reached out to the family demanding N13m ransom.
The Orekoya family had posted information on OLX, an online sales portal, seeking the service of a nanny, Akinloye indicated interest. After the 23-year-old resumed for work on Tuesday [April 7], she was said to have taken the three children, Aderomola (11 months old), Adedamola (4 years old), Demola (6 years old) out, while their parents were away. She didn’t not return with the children since Tuesday.
The kids' mother, Mrs Adebisi Busayo Adekunle Orekoya, has now confirmed the release of her children on her Facebook page.
