She described the suspect as a ‘tall fair complexion woman dressed in a purple Ankara with a black headscarf. 

“She is a Christian and she told me about two weeks ago that she wanted to learn how to make snacks. I accepted her,  but I don’t know any of her family members or where she stays and don’t even have her number.

“We went to the graduation together and she offered to help me carry the baby when I accompanied the elder brother to collect his certificate who was graduating.

“That was the last we saw of her. We have reported the case at ‘A’ Division police station in Surulere, Ilọrin but yet to hear from them,” the mother added.
