WATCH: Arrested nanny implicates family members

17 April 2015, 12:16

Lagos - The nanny, who kidnapped three children in the Surulere area of Lagos State, has said her husband, Waheed Kareem, is the mastermind of the kidnap.

While she was being paraded by the police, Mary confessed on tape as to how she carried out the kidnapping with the help of her husband.

She added that Kareem was the head of a kidnap ring that involved some members of his family. It was gathered that Kareem escaped arrest.

The nanny, who adopted a pseudonym, Mary Akinloye, to deceive the Orekoyas, confessed that her actual name was Funmilayo Adeyemi, a 35-year-old indigene of Osun State.

The Orekoyas had posted on an online sales portal, saying they needed a nanny for their children.

The suspect was said to have contacted the family and was employed immediately.

Barely 24 hours after she was employed, the nanny abducted three children of the family – Aderomola (11 months), Adedamola (4 years) and Demola (6 years).
