From Kayode Afolabi, Ore
A 14-year-old daughter of one Mrs Rashidat Ajetomobi, Tosin Ajetomobi who was declared missing has been found.
The Hope Metro gathered that the missing child was found last week at Ijora in Apapa-Iganmu Local Government Area of Lagos State and brought back to Ore, the headquarters of Odigbo Local Government Area of Ondo state.
It would be recalled that Tosin Ajetomobi’s mother, had earlier cried out over her missing daughter after she was taken to Lagos by one Gbemisola Obakpolor.
Speaking with our correspondent during the weekend, the girl, Tosin narrated that she purposely ran away from Obakpolor’s custody in Lagos when she was being maltreated.
She said that each time she had a misunderstanding with her children in the house, the children would report to her and without listening to her own side of the story, she would instruct her children to gang up and beat her.
“She didn’t fulfill all the promises she made to my mother in Ore to take care of me and sponsor my education, instead, she and her children would beat me every time, maltreat me.
“When school resumes, she would only take her children to school, neglecting me at home, if I ask her about the promise she made to my mother to sponsor my education, she would ask me to keep quiet, calling me unprintable names.
“Her children told me categorically that they would implicate me the way they implicated one of their aunties, identified as Esther, who was stabbed in the chest, I was terrified by their words, that was what led to my disappearance from their house.
“After I left her house, I ran to Ijora, wandering about, I became homeless before i met someone who I helped in selling food at her shop in Ijora.
“It was someone who came to that shop and noticed that the news was on the social media that I was missing, and I found my way back to Ore with the help of Obakpolor’s husband,” the girl narrated
The mother, Mrs Rashidat Ajetomobi who was filled with joy after receiving a phone call from the Police Area command in Ore that her missing daughter has been found, said she went to the court immediately to inform the court about the latest development
Obakpolor had been earlier arraigned before an Ore Chief Magistrate’s court for taking away a 14-year old girl from the parent under deceit and had been remanded.
