Two young girls from the nursery and kindergarten classrooms were kidnapped in their parents’ car, an ash-coloured muscle Camry in Akure’s Leo area
On Friday night, at 8 p.m., their mother drove into their compound after returning from an outing.
She was said to have parked the car in front of her house and went out to unlock the gates, leaving the two children in the vehicle.
Then another car with three passengers unexpectedly pulled up next to her; the occupants took her car key and sped away with the children inside.
Meanwhile, the Ondo State Police Command confirmed the kidnapping.
Mrs Funmilayo Odunlami, the State Police Public Relations Officer, said the police’s anti-kidnapping unit was already on the lookout in order to reclaim the two children and the car.
