The police have rescued three-year-old Oluwasemilore Adebiyi one month after she was kidnapped by her mother’s apprentice at Alagbado, Lagos.

She was rescued in Abia State after being sold to three buyers.
The apprentice, Grace John, was said to have led investigators to a buyer in Onitsha, the commercial nerve centre of Anambra State who in turn led them to another buyer.
It was said that the kid was resold for N500,000 and N600,000 by her second and third buyers.

According to a source, the parents are in Abia State and have identified the child, who is said to be in good health.

The source said: “Grace was arrested in Badagry. She led us to the eastern part of the country where the buyers were located and the baby rescued unhurt. We used Grace as bait to get the first buyer in Onitsha.

“She called the woman she sold the baby to on phone, informing her that she had another child to sell. The woman came to meet her at a bus-stop, where she was apprehended.

“The first suspect led us to another person she sold the child to for N500,000 in Awka, the Anambra State capital, who in turn, led us to the third buyer whom they sold the child to for N600,000. The third buyer was also at the verge of selling the child to the fourth buyer when she was rescued. So far, three persons have been arrested”.

John escaped with the minor when she took her with her mother, Mrs Oluwatobiloba Adebiyi’s permission to buy snacks.

The woman, who was yet to profile John, became apprehensive when they did not return and the apprentice’s number wasn’t going through.

The child’s parents were hopeful she would be found since they were not contacted for ransom.

Her father, Elesh Adebiyi said: “We give God praise. Our daughter is hale and hearty. Only that they cut her hair. Before she was abducted, she plaits her hair. Aside that, she is okay. We are grateful to the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS) and the Nigeria Police in general. This feat has further reaffirmed my confidence in our police.”
