The girl was with the maid during the church’s children thanksgiving service when she suddenly disappeared.

It was reported that the maid had gone to get Elo and her two siblings some slices of cake shared at the thanksgiving, but did not meet the girl on her seat when she returned.

A child, who also attended the programme, claimed to have seen a woman taking Elo away.

The case was reported at the Alausa Police Station and was later transferred to the Anti-Kidnapping Unit of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Yaba.

Our correspondent gathered that the girl was traced to Benin by the police on Friday while some suspects were arrested in connection with her abduction.

Her father, Okpogene, who spoke briefly with our correspondent on the telephone, said he had yet to be fully briefed on how she got to Benin.
