Housemaid That Abducted Two Boys From Lagos Home Was Hired From OLX



According to Punch Metro, the housemaid, identified simply
as Juliet,fled home with the kids –Rafael (3), and 15-month-
old Michael– who are nephews of a Nollywood actress, Kate
Henshaw, on Sunday evening after their parents went out
around 6pm.
The kids’ mother, Mrs. Onajite Esharegharan, and her
husband, Elvis, had decided to go for a shopping on the
fateful day in celebration of the latter’s birthday.
It was learnt that the couple had instructed Juliet, who hails
from Osun State, to lull the kids to sleep before they left
Juliet, the children, their grandmother and her nurse ─ who
also lives in the house ─ were in the sitting room watching
television, when the generator went off. It was said that the
elderly woman and the nurse decided to retire to their
respective rooms, while Juliet went upstairs with the
It was when the couple came back home that the household
discovered that the housemaid had sneaked out with the
It was gathered that Onajite secured the service of the
fleeing housemaid last Tuesday through a sale portal, OLX,
where a visitor, identified simply as Omolade, advertised .
Omolade had allegedly posted a number on the website for
those who were interested in a “humble” housemaid to apply
─ an advertisement to which Onajite responded.   It was
learnt that Omolade eventually took Juliet to Onajite’s office.
Onajite said, “After we came back from the church, the
children looked tired and I told Juliet to take Michael to bed
while I went to do my hair. He had not slept when I came
back. That day (Sunday) was my husband’s birthday and we
decided to have a couple’s outing. We told her to take the
children to bed immediately because they were very tired.
“We got back home at 9pm. It was Abigail, the nurse, that
opened the door for us. When we entered, everywhere was
quiet and that was when my husband became suspicious
because usually, our children would have run from upstairs
to say welcome.
“She probably deceived the kids that she was taking them to
their mum. Her telephone line and that of Omolade have
been switched off since yesterday (Sunday). We lodged
complaints at the Isheri Police Station and the Department of
State Service. The police said it was beyond their capacity,
but the DSS promised to track the housemaid down.”
Elvis, a businessman, said, “We just hope nothing is going to
happen to them. We do not have any specific suspicion as
to where she took them to.”
Onajite’s aunt, Mrs. Tina Obajuwana, said she was amazed
by the housemaid’s action despite her calm look.
“When she was introduced to me on Saturday, I thought she
would be a good woman. She looked gentle and hardly could
anyone think she is evil,” she said.
The Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Kenneth Nwosu,
confirmed the incident, adding that efforts were on to rescue
the victims.
He said, “There are efforts to rescue the children and
apprehend the fleeing maid. Members of the public are
encouraged to give information that will lead to the rescue of
the kids and reunite them with their parents.”
