Missing Ogun pregnant woman faked abduction, found in Kwara – Police

The Ogun State Police Command, on Monday, said a pregnant woman, Rahemat Lateef, who claimed to have been abducted by some unknown gunmen while going to the state hospital at Ijaiye, Abeokuta for child delivery, is a case of fake kidnap.

The spokesperson for the state police command, SP Omolola Odutola, disclosed this on her X handle on Monday.

Odutola said the woman having found out that she had suffered another miscarriage decided to fake her kidnap to avoid the wrath of her husband who was naturally expecting her to put to bed.

Mrs Lateef was said to have escaped to Kwara State and showed up back in Abeokuta with her father.

PUNCH Metro learnt that the housewife was said to have been frustrated due to repeated miscarriages and cooked up the kidnap story as an escape route.

Odutola while giving updates on the incident said, “Rahemat Lateef who the husband reported abducted, was never abducted, but planned her journey to Kwara State, to escape the wrath of her husband, because she has remained unlucky due to miscarriages.

“She planned the stories, she travelled to Kwara State herself, she was far from kidnap. She had a miscarriage, was frustrated due to repeated recurrences, and feared her husband’s reactions, so she orchestrated the script. The anti-kidnapping team started tracking her, till she showed up.

“She is under medical attention, safe,” she added.

Rahemat’s husband, Ogunbunmi Lateef, had last week Thursday claimed to have received a WhatsApp message notifying him of his wife’s kidnap by some abductors.

Odutola while confirming the report on her X handle had said, “One Ogunbunmi Lateef of Oke Lantoro reported that his pregnant wife due for delivery left home for the State Hospital, Ijaiye, Abeokuta.

“He received a WhatsApp message confirming the abduction of his wife by unknown armed men.”
