Mother of 5-months old baby kidnapped in Lagos

I've not been able to verify this, but a lot of people have been sending the info to me via twitter, FB and comments on this blog, so decided to share here.

The lady in the photo is Yanju Kusamotu Thomas. She was allegedly kidnapped on Sunday August 28 in Lagos. Yanju and her husband went to get fuel on that unfortunate day, and kidnappers double-crossed them and took Yanju. The husband managed to escape. Yanju is a 25 year old newly-wed with a 5-months old baby at home. If you have any info please call this number - 08098665589. (I've tried to call this number to get more info, but it's unavailable)

If you know more about this story and the lady in question, please share here. Thanks

Jesus! This kidnapping thing is getting serious o! Ehn! And dier is our president whinning and dining with mikel obi? Getting more securities for himself incase boko haram comes to attack! I'm sorry, but can't this guy be impeached ni? The natural disaster happening in that country lasan! Is less than that of the one done by the citizens! Joblessness being the big factor! Kolorun shanu wa oh......well I hope the mother, and this little one be safe oh! They shouldn't be going through this!

I got the same bbm today from a friend. I asked him and he said he knows the girl and that they studied law together in Igbinedion University while he was in Nigeria. So I think its true. I pray she is save.

Oh Jesus please have mercy. I pray that she is found hail and hearty in the mighty name of Jesus. Blood of Jesus, torment her abductors, let them know no peace of any form until she is returned to her family. Expedite her release in the mighty name of Jesus. St. Micheal, in the name of Jesus, cut all chains and cords that they are using to tie her down, Holy Spirit please keep this lady calm and protect her in all ways in the mighty name of Jesus I pray, amen

Is she from the popular Kusamotu family?

So, if you have not confirmed it, why post it? did you contact the police and see if any official missing person has been filed. BTW if this speculation is true,the husband may have an answer to this, this smells like a charade to get rid of the wife or get money from the wife's family who may be rich.

Tess said...

Sakara, you just spoke my mind. Honestly hope we are wrong though. Mysterious things happen these days that not much surprise me. God pls keep this lady safe in Jesus name

i can only pray that she is save and God watch over her 5month old baby. At least a contact shud be made to the family in distress.i can only pray that she is save and God watch over her 5month old baby. At least a contact shud be made to the family in distress.

AustynZOGS said...

the information is confusing as it is full of contradiction. Where exactly was she kidnapped? some are saying Ibadan others Lagos. Some are saying its the baby that was kidnapped some say its the woman. confusion

nice blog... have a view of my blog when free.. http://www.lonelyreload.com (A Growing Teenager Diary) .. do leave me some comment / guide if can.. if interested can follow my blog...

This story is VERY true,I am friends with her elder half sisters.
It is so obvious it is an inside job as the kidnappers are asking for the ransom in dollars.they have asked for 100,000 dollars because they know their late father left their inheritance in dollars. He had ten children and one died in 2007,each child is worth serious money.

Yanju is her own mothers first child for the late Kusamotu.Her mum Moji had two girls for Kusamotu.

The husband needs to be questioned,PLEASE Linda make it a topic on your blog as everyones suspecting the boy but nobody can talk due to the sensitive nature of husband and wife issues.

BABAJIDE THOMAS what have you done to your wife???????
Everyone knows there is something not right about your story.

PLEASE her family is worried,distraught,and confused.

LET YANJU GO so she can attend to her FIVE month old BABY.


Chika.
