A set of male twin toddlers have been kidnapped by a middle-aged man at the Ekeki Motor Park area of Yenagoa, the state capital.

Modupe was away to buy some ingredients for her business when the incident happened. She was said to have kept the children in the custody of one Aisha Ahmed, a female adult, while she left to get the items.

Narrating the incident, Modupe’s second child, Funmi, aged 10, said the man approached her and gave her the sum of N200 to go buy food for the twins but she refused and told him they had all eaten at home.

The little Funmi, who wept uncontrollably, said she eventually collected the N200 after the kidnapper insisted she should take the money and get the food for them.

“The man gave me N200 to buy food for my brothers but I told him that they have they eaten but he insisted; so I collected the money. Before I returned, he has carried my brothers away,” she said.

It was learnt that the kidnapper also tricked the children's custodian, Aisha, with the sum of N1,000 to also purchase some food for the kids.

According to Aisha, the man had earlier beckoned on her and gave her the sum of N1,000 to buy some food for the children so that he could have some change in lower Naira denominations.

“One man came to me and gave me one thousand naira note to buy three plates of food for the children so that he could have changed in his hand, but I asked him to bring the money so I would buy recharge card for him to get change.

“While I went to get the recharge card, I saw the eldest among the children (Funmi) and I queried her for leaving the kids; but she told me that the man gave her N200 to buy food for the children.

“When we returned, we did not see the two boys. I don't know what has happened to them,” she said

Modupe, cried uncontrollably: “I left my children with my friend Aisha to buy salt at Tombia junction.

“Now they are telling me that my babies are nowhere to be found. If I don’t see my children, I will die.”

When contacted, DSP Asinim Butswat, the Police Public Relations Officer of the Bayelsa State Police Command, confirmed the incident and said that “we have commenced investigation.”
