Mrs Modupe Kolawole who is the mother of the missing 1-year-old boy,said she was surprised that her child disappeared from a church where people went to worship God.
Modupe said, “On Sunday, we went to the church and I took him to the children’s department. On getting there, I registered him. After about an hour, I went to check on him and I saw him holding puff-puff and I asked one of the Sunday school teachers, who told me that it was the church that gave the children the puff-puff. So I left them.
“After the service, I went there to pick my child and I could not find him. I asked the teachers and they said maybe someone took him out and I asked them why they would allow someone to take another person’s child out. Up till now, we have not found him
