2 Kids Go Missing During Jumat Service In Lagos
The whereabouts of 3-year-old Muhaisin Awaz and Abdallah Abdulazeez, 6 is yet unknown after they went missing during a Jumat service at Oniyanrin, in the Mile 12, Ketu area of Lagos State.
The families of the two children are friends and Abdulazeez’s mother had visited Muhaisin’s parents on that Friday to inform them of her plans to travel to her hometown in Kano State.
She was said to be heavily pregnant and wanted to give birth in Kano.
During the visit, the two children were said to be playing together when they heard the call to Islamic prayers.
The two children hurried downstairs to join other Muslim faithfuls for the prayers.
They were said to have gone missing during the payers as they could not be found afterwards.
Muhaisin’s sister, Sekiyat, said that the incident happened around 1.30pm on December 16.
The three-year-old’s mother, Ramotu, said the families had gone to different police stations in Lagos, including Ketu, Ojodu and Ikeja police divisions, adding that their efforts were futile.
She noted that the families were anxious to hear from whoever took them away, adding that nobody had called for ransom.
She said, “We have asked from people who were at the mosque and they claimed that they didn’t see them. A woman, however, told us that she sighted them two houses away from our house and she asked them where they were going, but she didn’t get a response.
“Nobody has called us for any ransom. And these two children don’t even know the way home. One is in nursery one and the other is a nursery two pupil. We are at a loss on their whereabouts.”
The police said efforts are being made to unravel the mystery.
