The unidentified lady, who sneaked into the house to abduct the girl, had tricked her with the impression that her mother asked her to follow her to a fake birthday party within the area.

During the painstaking search for the girl, the father said there was no demand for ransom from anybody.

Reacting to the development, the spokesman of the state police command, Mr. Okasanmi Ajayi, informed newsmen on Tuesday that, “the little girl was found by a good Samaritan around Oja-Oba area in Ilorin and brought to ‘C’ Divisional Police station, Oja-Oba, where the command had pasted the picture of the girl since she was being looked for.
