The Edo State government has evacuated 15 children from the God’s Own Orphanage, in Benin, pending the conclusion of on-going investigation into the case of a Elo Ogidi, who was allegedly stolen from the Christ Embassy Church, Oregun, Lagos and found at the orphanage in Benin. Four-year-old Ogidi was stolen during a church service in July and found last Friday, at the God’s Own Orphanage, when policemen raided the facility after a tip-off. The police have arrested the Proprietress of the Orphanage Home, Kehinde Blessing Imarhiagbe, for complicity in the alleged theft of Elo Ogidi.

Speaking with journalists on Friday, after sealing off the home, located at 25 Davies Street, off 2nd Dr. Garrick Layout, the Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Development, Magdalene Ohenhen, said the management of the home did not follow due process in admitting Elo into the facility. She said during the operation, the police also discovered that the orphanage had three other children who were not documented with the ministry as required by law. Ohenhen maintained that there were rules and regulations guiding the operations of orphanages in the state, but that the management did not abide by them. “The procedure is that before you accept a child into an orphanage in the state, the operator of the home must inform the state government through the state’s Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development. “Children in the orphanage numbering about 15 are being moved to a safer centre, where they will be under the custody of the Edo State government, pending when investigation on the activities of the home is concluded,” she said.
