The 4-year-old daughter of a pastor, Elo Ogidi,who was abducted during a church service at Christ Embassy Headquarters in Oregun, Lagos has been found.
Elo, her parents, two other siblings and their househelp had gone to church on Sunday for thanksgiving. While the parents went to attend the service in the adult church, Elo was left in the care of the househelp at the children’s church section.
The Personal Assistant to Elo’s father, Solo Cosmos, who spoke to Punch, said;
“The family were all there at that thanksgiving service and Elo was with the maid, who took care of the three kids of the family. Cake was shared for the children during the thanksgiving service and the maid went to get the kids’ slices. But when she returned, she discovered that Elo was not on her seat again. We got information from a child that he saw Elo outside the tent where they had the children thanksgiving service. The kid said after Elo came out of the tent, a woman grabbed her hand and took her away. We immediately organise a search party but she was not found.”
Elo was reportedly with the maid during a church program on the 8th of July, 2018, when she went missing. She was reunited with her family, some hours ago.
Details about her return are still sketchy, but some church members have since been thanking God for her safe return.
UPDATE: According to her father who spoke with LIB, Elo was found in an orphange home in Benin city in Edo state. He said after her photo went viral last week, a lady called him that he saw a little girl that looked like Elo in an orphange in Benin city. He then had a video call with Elo and confirmed that she was indeed his daughter. He said he would be in Edo state tomorrow to meet with her.
