2yrs old Khadija was abducted by an unknown woman in Kuje area of the Federal Capital Territory.
The girl’s father, Mr. Umar Suleiman, said she was kidnapped in their former neighbouhood in Kuje while he was away in Akure.
Suleiman had on Saturday announced the abduction of his daughter on his Facebook wall.
"This is my daughter. Her name is Khadija. She was snatched... by a woman in Kuje. Please, anybody who sees her should report to the nearest police station. My number is 08022416077.”
Narrating what transpired on the day, Suleiman told Northern City News: “On Saturday, when I was going for a job in Ondo and took a flight to Akure, I left my wife and daughter at home.
“The mother (his wife) is pregnant and, at a point, she started feeling a discomfort. She decided to visit the hospital while she kept our daughter, who is two years and seven months with our former neighbours where we lived for two years before relocating to the Low Cost Estate where we’ve only spent three months.
“On the mother’s return, the neighbours told her the girl had gone to buy ‘wara’ (milk cake) in company with a neighbour’s son , a 10-year-old. The boy later returned to say a woman had snatched the girl from him.”
The father, who had reported the incident to the police, said, “Because of that discomfort, the mother went into labour. She was in shock and could not be delivered of the baby. This morning (Sunday), they had to conduct a caesarean section on her because the baby’s heartbeat was not proper, they had to do the surgery.”
Surprisingly, the FCT Police PRO, Anjuguri Manzah, said he was not aware of the case.
