Housemaid steals boss’s children, turns them to beggars

A middle-aged Fulani woman has been arrested after she stole two children in Ogere, Remo North local government area of Ogun State, and turned them to beggars in Ikorodu, a Lagos suburb.


The suspect simply identified as Asmau allegedly disappeared with two female children of  her mistress, Amina, 6 and Rukayya, 7, Vanguard reported.

The report says Asmau worked with the mother of the children, Hauwa, as a house maid for four months and lived in their house at Ogere, only to abduct them under the pretense of taking them to their grandmother in Lagos.

The suspect(pictured with her victims) was later arrested in Ikorodu while using them as beggars.

“My brother came to pick them (Amina and Rukayya) but did not meet me and my children at home on Sallah day because we had gone to the Eid ground to pray. He did not wait for me as he left for Lagos. When my children knew that he had come and gone they started crying.

“Asmau used the opportunity and told me she was going to Lagos that day and that she will help me to take them to their grandparents, so, I agreed and asked the children to go with her. After two days, I found out that the children were not at their grandparents’ house, I called the woman but her number was not connecting. I checked her at her house, I did not find her and my children,” Hauwa told the paper.
