Apprentice disappears with boss’ 3-yr-old daughter barely 5 days after resuming work


The Anti-Kidnapping Unit of Lagos State Police Command has begun investigation into the abduction of Mrs Oluwatobi Adebiyi’s three-year-old baby by her mother’s apprentice, last Saturday at their Alagbado home. The woman, a milliner, also strings beads.
Vanguard gathered that the incident occurred barely five days after the apprentice, who identified herself as John Grace, resumed work at the baby’s mother’s shop.
Grace, according to the baby’s father, approached his wife two weeks ago, signifying her interest to learn the art of bead and hat making. After giving her the conditions for registration, Grace as gathered, left with a promise to be back.

She reported at the shop located at 1, James Oyedele Street, Moshalashi, on January 23 and made a part payment of N10,000 to Mrs Adebiyi. However, when requested to provide other conditions such as two copies of her passport photographs and a guarantor, Grace assured her boss that she would make them availa-ble by Saturday, January 28.

But the unexpected happened last Saturday, after she informed her boss that she was going to buy snacks.

Explaining how the family was thrown into anguish, the baby’s father, Mr. Adebiyi, said:

“I was not at home when the incident happened. But my wife told me that while Grace was leaving the shop, our three-year-old baby was crying after her. My wife allowed her to go with Grace without an inkling of any sinister motive. “But after waiting for about five minutes without seeing them, she went out of the shop and saw Grace standing with a man whom she concluded could be her brother that was to come and stand as a guarantor for her. She went back into the shop. “She was tempted to go out and look for them having waited for some time. But this time around, neither Grace, the stranger nor our baby was seen. She immediately called Grace’s phone. But she kept cutting the calls, saying she was in a noisy place. “At a point, she switched off her phone. It is so strange because this particular baby does not like strangers carrying her. We have not heard anything from her since Saturday.”

He added that there has been no call to demand for ransom for the release of their daughter.

  2. Maybe grace was not even after learning how to make the beads, she was really after abducting the little girl. I pray they find her and recover the baby before something else happen to her.

  3. Wow that’s really weird, that is he was just after the little girl, just 5 days after resuming work

  4. What!!!..This is a very wicked thing to do!!..This person apparently had an evil plan all this while and was merely pretending and waiting for the right moment to strike!!.

  5. Na wa ooo just like that.make dem find am reach e village and arrest all e relative surely one of dem must know where e dey

  6. Lolzzz the o called apprentice has been planning this for long. May God guide the little child and save her

  7. Sometimes I don’t understand what has happened to our conscience, she’s only a child, dats inhuman. I pray for the safe recovery of dat child

  8. Some ladys re devil in human form.i wonder what dis little girl will be going through in her hands now.

  9. What the hell is this country turning into…every body is looking 4 a easy way out…ur evil deeds will surely get uuu

  10. People get mind oo u no say dem know u u still get mind carry dat baby dem go catch u shaa

  11. In this present time with all that is been going on somebody will still leave his child with an apprentice, how for crazy are you?

  12. This is why it is advisable to pray about your intending apprentice by whatever means you believe in before employing them.However,any apprentice that comes into our custody or home with any evil intention will be exposed in Jesus name!!!
