3 Children Abandoned As Husband, Wife Sent To Prison
3 children of the same parents have been abandoned as their parents have been arrested and remanded in prison custody.
The children, 4–year old Kudirick and twins, Taye and Kehinde who are two years of age, have been left to their fate at 13 Agoro street in Mushin where they live.
Their parents, Taofik Aremu and his wife, Latifat, were arraigned before a Lagos Task Force and Magistrate court for committing different offences, and have been remanded in prison for the past five weeks.
While Taofik was remanded at a prison in Badagry, his wife is cooling her heels at Kirikiri prison.
Aremu was arrested by the Lagos State Task Force while he was going to work. He was subsequently arraigned and remanded in prison.
His wife was remanded in prison after she had a disagreement with their landlady.
It was gathered that the landlady, Iyabola Oladokun asked her to move out from her rented apartment despite having an existing one year rent.
It was learnt that the landlady later went to the police station where she reported that Latifat insulted her. The police arrested Latifat and charged her to court.
At the court, she pleaded not guilty, and the presiding Magistrate granted her bail in the sum of N50,000 with two sureties in the like sum.
She was then remanded in custody pending when she will perfect her bail conditions.
She could, however, not perfect her bail conditions as there was nobody to stand as her sureties because of money.
When the matter came up on Thursday, it was further adjourned till 15 April 2017.
At the court, their neighbours brought the children for her to prison, but she was not allowed to do so.
She wept before she was taken back to custody.
