Nohim Ishola, a three-year-old boy, also disappeared in the neighborhood of Ogundimu in October 2021.

Ishola vanished a year after a group of seven neighborhood kids vanished.

Faruq, the most recent victim, is believed to have vanished near the community’s palace area at 1pm.

His mother, Selepha Saluhu, lamented that efforts by the family to find him had been abortive.

She said,

“Faruq came back from school yesterday (Tuesday). I fed him and he went to his father’s shop nearby to play. I was told that he followed one of his friends who was asked to buy sachet water. The other boy returned, but my son never came back. When my husband did not see him after a while, he immediately told me that he was missing and carried out a search for him, but to no avail.”

The 38-year-old housewife noted that her husband later reported the matter at the Iponri Police Station.

The Head of the Lagos Mainland Security Team, Ishola Agbodemu, said the disappearance of children in the community had become a severe cause for concern.

He said,

“The disappearance of Faruq yesterday (Tuesday) makes him the 10th child to go missing in this community. We have made efforts by reporting to the police. This issue of children going missing has also been reported in the media, but there is no change.”

Agbodemu noted that all the missing children were male.
