Chioma Ibeh and her daughter Rita were reported on social media by some good persons after they were found staying away in Ijaiye-Owode community, Ogun State earlier week.
The victims have been handed over to their closest relative, Cletus Ibeh, brother of woman after they were kept in the custody of the Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development for two days.
Said Cletus who traveled all the way from their community in Oji, Enugu State to reunite with the mother and child:
“I came to Abeokuta when somebody told us that they saw her and daughter in the news. We have been looking for them for the past three days. I first went to Owode at the king’s palace and they told me they are in the ministry.
“We are grateful to everybody, especially the media for the publicity. Only God will reward you.”
