PostSubject: How abducted Orekoya boys became friends with kidnapper’s children   2015-04-18, 04:07

The three children of Mr. and Mrs.
Leke Orekoya–Aderomola (11
months old), Adedamola (4 years
old), Demola (6 years old) ─ who
finally regained their freedom on
Wednesday, having spent seven
days in the hands of kidnappers,
have yet to fully grasp the enormity
of what they went through.
But as much as their innocent
minds could comprehend, they
have been able to describe life in
captivity.
Playfully, the oldest of the children,
Demola answered questions our
correspondent put to him.
Thirty-five-year-old Funmilayo
Adeyemi, who abducted the three
children, after she resumed work as
a nanny at the couple’s Surulere
home, has four children.
Those four children quickly turned
to tools of her heinous business
after the Orekoya boys were
brought home.
In order to ensure the children did
not miss home too much, Adeyemi
allowed the children play with her
own children.
Demola told our correspondent
that neither he nor brothers cried
when they did not see their mother
in those seven days.
“The woman asked us to play with
her children. We all played
together, though their television
was not working, we only played
around the house. We did not cry
because we had people to play
with,” the boy said.
He went further to say, “She
(Adeyemi)brushed our teeth every
morning but she only bathed us in
the morning. She did not bathe us
in the night like our mummy does
for us at home.”
The children love cartoons but that
was too much of a luxury for them
to enjoy in captivity.
“We could not watch cartoon
network because the television in
their house was not working,” little
Demola said.
He said he misses his friends and
could not wait to play with them
again, but that surely will be under
the watchful eyes of their mother,
Adebisi Orekoya.
Adebisi told Saturday PUNCH in an
interview that she is still in shock
and has not been able to let her
children out of her sight since they
got back.
“For now, they would remain in my
sight. I have to remain with them,”
she said.
Asked if she was planning to resign
from her banking job and stay
home full time for the time being,
she said she had not made that
decision yet.
It would not be an overstatement
to say that Adebisi Orekoya is the
happiest woman alive. The banker
did not hide this fact on Thursday,
as she poured out her mind on why
she would always be thankful to
God and the people who were
sympathetic to her family within
the seven days they searched for
their three kidnapped children.
Having advertised on online sales
portal, Olx, for a nanny, the
Orekoyas got a reply from 23-year-
old Mary Akinloye, who resumed
work at their Lawani Road, Itire,
home on Tuesday, April 7, 2015.
The nanny, whose actual name was
later revealed as Funmilayo
Adeyemi, abducted the couple’s
three children the following day
while the couple were away from
home.
But after seven days of fasting and
prayer, sleepless nights, scam
attempts, predictions from
prophets and negotiations, the
Orekoyas got their children back.
Adebisi told Saturday PUNCH that
even though the children have not
been able to fully grasp the
enormity of what happened to
them, they knew they were in the
wrong hands for the period they
were in captivity.
“They told me the people who took
them did not take care of them and
they were bitten all over by
mosquitoes,” she said.
On Thursday, the Orekoyas
addressed journalists in Lagos to
extend their appreciation to
Nigerians who in one way or the
other extended their help to the
family.
Adebisi explained that no one
could truly understand the relief
and happiness that had engulfed
her since the return of her children.
The kidnappers had loaded the
children in a large plastic bag and
dropped them around Shasha, in
Egbeda area of Lagos.
There were signs of weariness on
the woman’s face as she picked her
words softly, but her relief was
unmistakable.
“I have not slept for a single day
since the day my children went
missing,” she said. “That is because
the kidnappers would sometimes
call around 3am for negotiation.”
Adebisi explained that she was only
able to sleep on Thursday, the day
after the children were found.
“Even as they got treated in the
hospital after we recovered them, I
still could not sleep. I sat there
watching over them so another
maid would not come and take
them away,” the woman said.
As many people expressed their
sympathies for such a terrible fate
that had befallen the Orekoyas,
some Nigerians home and abroad
had expressed on the social media
that the family had been careless to
have employed a maid through the
social media.
Asked what pushed them to
advertise for a nanny through an
online market, Adebisi said it was
not the first time she would get a
nanny by advertising online.
According to her, she would not
have put her children in such
danger if she had any inkling that
kidnappers had gone to the extent
of also sourcing for their victims
online.
Flashing back to the last day she
saw her children, Adebisi explained
that Adeyemi was extra-nice that
day.
“She worked well. She cleaned
everywhere and played with the
children as if they were hers. With
her attitude and the way she
behaved, she must have been a
well-trained kidnapper,” she said.
But Adebisi had no inkling that she
was about to start the worst period
of her life.
But the experience has left some
effect on the young minds of the
children. Adebisi said she feared it
might take a while for the
youngest, Aderomola, to adjust.
Adebisi said, “One of my children
said, ‘Mummy, they put us inside
nylon and put us inside the car. It
was hot in there.’ They could not
say if it was inside the boot of the
passenger’s seat. He was just
playing.
“They would be okay. The baby is
still exhibiting fears. He is afraid
and I can understand why. He went
through serious harsh conditions
and is suddenly seeing love
everywhere. He is wondering what
is going on.”
Asked if she would ever get a nanny
again, Adebisi replied that she had
not decided on that yet.
Meanwhile, since the arrest of
Adeyemi, who was tracked down
through her mobile phone on
Wednesday, the police have said
investigation was still ongoing on
the case.
Police Public Relations Officer of
the command, Kenneth Nwosu, said
efforts were being made to arrest
other fleeing accomplices.
