A family in Lagos state is currently in search of their two-year-old son, Praise Otojareri, who was allegedly taken away by their housemaid simply identified as Favour, on Sunday, December 19.


Speaking to LIB, Mr. Moses Otojareri, the father of the missing boy, said sometime in November, a man who his wife knows very well came to their house in Aguda, Surulere, with two girls and said they were in need of a job. He said his wife who runs a salon decided to employ Favour to cater for their two children, a nine-year-old daughter, a two-year-old son, Praise.


He said on December 19, his wife, two children, and Favor left for church. He said while in church, his wife who is a hairdresser received a call from a customer who needed her services at her shop. He said his wife left the church and gave instructions to Favour to stay back in church watching the two children and bring them to her shop after the close of service.

The teacher who has seen the baby boy come with Favor and his mum to church released Praise to her. The father said his wife became worried after she waited for hours and did not see them in her shop.

”After some hours, a call came in asking ”Are you Mummy Favour and Praise?’ She replied saying Favour is her housemaid and Praise is her son and that she has been looking for them for some hours now. The man said they are at Ibafor in Mowe and that Favour said she missed her way that she was going to her sister’s house in Ikotun. ”he said


Mr. Otojareri said his wife told the adults who called to help her hold Favour and her son that she was on her way to meet with them. He said his wife asked them to drop Favour and Praise off at the nearest police station after the adults informed her they were still going to a further distance and couldn’t wait for her to get there.


”By this time some people had gathered saying they wanted to beat Favour up as they suspected it was a case of kidnapping. However, an Alfa came in and asked them not to beat her.
