I Ran Away Because She And Her Children Always Maltreat Me


A 14-year-old Ondo girl, Tosin Ajetomobi, who was reported missing from her guardian’s home has been found in Lagos State.

It earlier reported that Obakpolor was docked before an Ore Magistrates’ court over the disappearance of the teenage girl.

According to The Hope Newspaper, the missing girl was found last week at Ijora in Apapa-Iganmu Local Government Area of Lagos State and brought back to Ore, the headquarters of Odigbo Local Government Area of Ondo state.
Speaking with to the state-owned newspaper, during the weekend, Tosin narrated that she purposely ran away from Obakpolor’s custody in Lagos when she was allegedly being maltreated.

She said that each time she had a misunderstanding with Obakpolor’s children in the house, the children would report to her and without listening to her side of the story, she would instruct the children to gang up and beat her.

“She didn’t fulfill all the promises she made to my mother in Ore to take care of me and sponsor my education, instead, she and her children would beat me every time, maltreat me,” the girl explained.

“When school resumes, she would only take her children to school, neglecting me at home, if I ask her about the promise she made to my mother to sponsor my education, she would ask me to keep quiet, calling me unprintable names.

“Her children told me categorically that they would implicate me the way they implicated one of their aunties, identified as Esther, who was stabbed in the chest, I was terrified by their words, that was what led to my disappearance from their house.

“After I left her house, I ran to Ijora, wandering about, I became homeless before i met someone who I helped in selling food at her shop in Ijora.

“It was someone who came to that shop and noticed that the news was on the social media that I was missing, and I found my way back to Ore with the help of Obakpolor’s husband,” the girl narrated.

The mother, Mrs. Rashidat Ajetomobi who was filled with joy after receiving a phone call from the Police Area command in Ore that her missing daughter had been found, said she went to the court immediately to inform the court about the latest development.
