An unidentified woman, who disguised as a teacher, has abducted five children from their homes in Rukpakulusi axis of Eliozu in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
Three of the children, whose ages ranged from 18-months to four years, were reportedly abducted from one family while two others were taken away from another family.
The mother of the first three victims, Rose Monday, said the unknown woman took her children when they went over to their neighbour’s compound to play.
She said the suspect claimed to be a home lesson teacher, who was looking for a makeshift structure to rent in the area.
She said her children were last seen after the woman took them to buy notebooks.
According to her: “I was at home when one of my children who was playing with her siblings came back alone. I asked her the whereabouts of her brothers’. She said one aunty (woman) said she will bring them home.
“I asked where the woman was taken them to, she replied that the woman took her to Oil Mill (a popular market in Port Harcourt) to start taking them on lessons and she and the other children followed her.
“They (children) were seven including one of my neighbours child. She said the woman told her to go that she has given her money for transport, that she will bring her brothers to the house,” the mother explained.
Monday’s 14-year old daughter narrated how the woman deceived her and another neighbour’s son before running away with the children.
She said: “I told the aunty that the small one (child) don’t know how to write that herself and the woman can go and buy the books.
