Unknown Woman Vanishes With Two Children In Benue

In the Benue State capital of Makurdi, a woman who has not been named has vanished with two children after luring them with local food, according to reports.

Benedict Kpaakpa, 2, and Philomena Kpaakpa, 4, were abducted from their mother’s kiosk in front of their house.
Reporters learned that when the unidentified woman allegedly bought a snack from the kids at the kiosk, the mother had already left them to go to an early morning mass.

According to reports, she insisted she had no change and asked the kids to go with her to the roadside so she could get the cash for the snack.

Further information revealed that the police had been notified about the event.

The children were not taken from their home near the church, as some people have claimed, but rather from the church, according to Tica Saviour, a friend of the victims’ family. In her nearby church, their mother attended mass on Sunday morning.

She put the kids in charge of running her modest kiosk, which she uses to sell native foods like guinea corn drink (kunu). With N500 in hand, the lady went out and spent N50 on a sesame. The woman asked the kids to accompany her to the roadside so she could get the N50 but when there was no change, she left them behind and vanished.

When contacted, SP Catherine Anene, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) for the Benue Command, texted our correspondent to confirm the event.

“Yes, it has been reported, and an investigation is ongoing,” she added.
