A 4-year-old girl, Elo Ogidi, was, last Sunday, kidnapped during children thanksgiving service at the headquarters of the Christ Embassy in Oregun, Lagos.
In a chat with Punch, the Personal Assistant to Elo’s father, Solo Cosmos, disclosed that efforts to find her had been abortive, adding that the police had yet to have a clue on the whereabouts of the pupil.
“The family were all there at that thanksgiving service and Elo was with the maid, who took care of the three kids of the family. Cake was shared for the children during the thanksgiving service and the maid went to get the kids’ slices.
But when she returned, she discovered that Elo was not on her seat again. We got information from a child that he saw Elo outside the tent where they had the children thanksgiving service.
The kid said after Elo came out of the tent, a woman grabbed her hand and took her away. We immediately organise a search party but she was not found.”
Cosmos told Punch that the family had been in distress as a result of the incident, urging anyone with information on her whereabouts to contact the police.
The Officer-in-Charge of the Anti-Kidnapping Unit, Bulus Musa, confirmed the incident, adding that it was a case of kidnapping.
