Elo Ogidi has reconnected with her family after seven weeks of being separated from them. A man who is not her father reportedly surrendered her to an orphanage.


The parents of a little girl, Elo Ogidi are dealing with a feeling of huge loss after the 4-year-old disappeared during a service at the Christ Embassy Church, Oregun.

On Sunday, July 8, 2018, the family were at the children thanksgiving service located at the Lagos worship center when the child escaped housemaid's trained eye.

Ogidi's carer who also takes care of two other kids had gone to get some cake slices for the trio but returned to them to find the little girl missing.

Solo Cosmos described as a personal assistant to her father told Punch News that the family are unhappy about her disappearance.

“The family were all there at that thanksgiving service and Elo was with the maid, who took care of the three kids of the family.

“Cake was shared for the children during the thanksgiving service and the maid went to get the kids’ slices. But when she returned, she discovered that Elo was not on her seat again.

“We got information from a child that he saw Elo outside the tent where they had the children thanksgiving service. The kid said after Elo came out of the tent, a woman grabbed her hand and took her away.

“We immediately organise a search party but she was not found," he said.
