Mother of nanny who kidnapped Orekoya boys pleads for forgiveness

Prophetess Esther Adeyemi, mother of Funmilola Adeyemi, the nanny who kidnapped the Orekoya boys has called on the affected family and the general public to have mercy on her daughter and forgive her. Mrs Adeyemi in an interview with Saturday Sun, said Funmi, who is her first daughter left home 10 years ago and until she was arrested and shown in the media, she didn't know where her daughter was. Mrs Adeyemi who is a widow, says though she is ashamed of what her daughter did, she cannot abandon her.


"All has always been well till their fa­ther died. He was killed during the Ife and Modakeke fight. During that time, we were based in Calabar and as expected we were evicted from the barracks and we relocated to Osun State. He died as a Chief Superintendent of Police. Luckily, I am a prophetess and I de­cided to embrace my ministry. I had to get closer home and most importantly close to the mountain. By the grace of God, I became popular in Lagos and Ajah. As the first daughter of the house, I want­ed the best for her, so I invested in her edu­cation. She got admission to study Survey at Osun Polytechnic. After her graduation, she worked briefly as a receptionist till one day in 2005, she came to me that she wanted to go back to school for her HND. I gave her enough money to sustain her for months. This was the last I heard from her. I was worried but anytime that I attempted to call the police, she will call her sister and tell her that she is fine. This always happened anytime I go to the mountain to pray. She is 35 years and old enough to be a mother but I never knew that I had four grandchildren from her. They kidnapped my daughter and placed her under a spell. What sort of human being from a Christian back­ground will suddenly decide to sell their soul to the devil? Please, forgive my daughter and give me the chance to break the spell. You all heard that she claimed that she wanted to expand their family wealth. Which normal woman would be working for a man who has refused to marry her after four children? Please, have mercy on my daughter. I thank God that none of the kids died in the process,” she pleaded.
On how she learnt of Funmi's arrest, Mrs Adeyemi said one of her daughters had seen Funmi's picture on the internet and alerted her that Funmi was in some kind of trouble.
“She called me that a lady who looks like my daughter is on her whatsapp. I waved it aside till I saw her pictures every­where. It was a great shock. I prayed for the ground to open and swallow me. The shame was too much but no matter how bad a child turns out to be, a mother cannot abandon him or her. I am ashamed but all the same I thank God that she is truly alive. It could be God’s way of rescuing my daughter from the hands of those criminals. She is under a spell and almighty God will help me deliver her,” Mrs Adeyemi stated.
When asked why she did not use her gift of prophecy to find her daughter, Mrs. Adeyemi said:
“I never knew that she was lost, so I did not bother focusing my prayer on her. I felt that she is an adult and should be al­lowed to live her life. Most especially, since she gets in touch with her sister, I felt no need to worry. The only time I spoke with her, she said that she was in South Africa.”she said

Indeed wrong r/ship corrupts d minds. Dis r words goes far "The shame was too much but no matter how bad a child turns out to be, a mother cannot abandon him or her".

She should go to prison for life. No forgiveness. The mother should be locked up for giving birth to a criminal.

Unfortunately what hee daughter did is despicable

Anonymous said...

If she is truely under a spell, it means she did not know what she was doing. She was being controlled by some spiritual supernatural force. I pity her if that's the case. But as a prayer worrior and a woman of God, i am surprised that her mother's prayers could not stop her from getting into trouble. Anyways, God knows best. My advise is that she should go and beg the children's mother to drop the case before they convict her daughter.

She should be pardon, for de sake of de old woman.

She must be charged to court for trial. If the court pardons her fine. Pls the right thing to do is to charge her to court. I detest stupid sentiments as expressed in some comments. If an armed robber is caught he becomes jelly and begs for pardon. Whaat excuse or reasons would any idiot give for abducting anyone talk more of toddlers as the Adekoya's. Do u realise the psychological trauma that family had undergone. What if they couldn't raise the ransome demanded. To hell with stupid sentiments. That woman must be tried in court. If the Adekoyas like they can chicken out. Did she consider that she was hurting a fellow woman whwn she was committing the crime? While her own kids are in safety. She must pay for her crime.

Nope! It's not in the hands of the Orekoyas, it's a criminal matter not a civil case. Criminal matters are prosecuted by the state/police. Also, let's not forget that she confessed to the earlier kidnapping of those two children in Magodo so she actually has 2 cases to answer for.

As in ehn, I'm feeling somehow now. I feel the woman's pain and if truly her explanations above are true, then the Adeyemi needs help. She's probably under some deep spell.
She needs help.

Did I hear you say pardon! What if one or all the boys had died in the process, what if it happened to you, I wouldn't have bothered if this comment came from someone who has not gone through the pain of child labour but just imagined it was you then you can tell if she truly deserves forgiveness, mtcheew.

I plead for her forgiveness considering the statement from her mother. awww... the love of a mother. I really feel pity. If God can forgive us, we should as well.

all you people saying forgive her should take a seat!! WTF? If a person that kidnapped 3 little children shouldn't face justice than we might as well forgive every criminal out in society then. Can you imagine!?? You come home and 3 of your children are kidnapped and after the police find your kids some bastards start telling you to forgive the kidnapper? I would burn alive any idiot that tells me that shit and then go to jail for murder. Dumd idiots. And shame on her mother too, fake prophetess.

olamide Ashafa said...

So she can go and kidnap the whole family and kill Dem for exposing her this much abi! Hell no!! She have to be seriously dealt with!

Okpe N said...

Not in any way trivialising her gross misconduct. For a fact she is nonetheless a criminal..But to 4give is divine. Forgiveness comes to play when you are right as well as when wrong. its a 2way traffic and a bridge that shldnt be burnt..cos we all gonna need that bridge in our own peculiar way someday.

Mama, your daughter has been a bad person hence she fell into a wrong hands. How can she leave home for ten years without contacting her mum. Also, you said you are well known in Ajah, how come u didn't discover she stays in Abijor because that is where she took the kidnapped kids to.
