Two siblings, Dapo and Olajuwon Babatobi have been reportedly declared missing in Ilara-Mokin community, Ifedore local government area of Ondo state.
Dapo, who is nine year-old and Olajuwon, seven year-old, were declared missing last Wednesday after returning from school by their grandmother, Mrs. Fadekemi Falodun.
It was learnt that the two kids have been living with their grandmother, who is a trader since their parents separated.
It was gathered that Dapo and his younger brother, who did not meet their grandmother at home when they returned from school last Wednesday, informed their neigbours that they are going to their mother’s house, Mrs. Omolola Arijeloye, who has remarried another man in that town to eat.
A source who lives in the town, but does not want his name mentioned, said the two kids were discovered missing when Omolola visited her mother and she was asked about the whereabout of the kids, who claimed they are going to her house to eat.
“It was since then that we are been searching for them. We have reported the matter to the police at Ila-Mokin but they have transferred the matter to the police in Igbara-Oke” the source said.
The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the state, Mr. Femi Joseph, who confirmed the incident, said the police got the tip of the matter last Friday.
Joseph said the parents of the kids, are presently in their custody for interrogations in order to help the police in their investigation.
The Police imagemaker said they decided to detain the parents because Omolola’s family accused their former in-law, Alaba Babatobi of once threatening that he was ready to do anything to ensure the kids are in his custody.
He said, “we are still investigating the matter and the parents are in our custody to help us unravel the mystery behind the missing kids”.
