Police rescue toddler kidnapped at MFM

Kidnappers of MFM Toodler

Lagos State Police Command has rescued a three-year-old, Esther Ojo, kidnapped on the premises of Mountain of Fire and Prayer Ministries (MFM) regional headquarters in Agege, Lagos in March.

Two suspected abductors, Nwaigbo Magnus and Sixtus Egwim, were also arrested at the location where they gave the child’s parents to bring the ransom.

A Lagos police prosecutor told Ebute Meta Chief Magistrates’ Court last Friday that a man, Chibuzor Elikee, had demanded for N1.6 million cash, and N5,000 recharge cards as ransom for the child.

The prosecutor also said that others who were involved in the alleged crime were still at large.

However, Lagos police spokesman, Bala Elkana, confirmed that the suspected kidnappers were arrested at about 12:30 pm on Monday.

“The kidnappers already demanded ransom of undisclosed amount from the parents of the baby and the church. They continued to change the venue for the collection of ransom within Igando axis for over four hours until they were rounded up by the police,” he said.
