Missing Baby: Choir Member Absconds With Church Member’s Baby And Hasn’t Returned Him

You will expect the house of God to be a place of worship – a place where you can feel safe and comfortable among fellow worshippers but the travails of the Obafemi family, will put paid to that assumption as their little son whom they went to church with, is nowhere to be found now.

According to Linda Ikeji, Oluwatoniloba David Obafemi was kidnapped by Comfort Amos on Sunday, September 23, 2012 at RCCG, Central Parish, Aminu Kano Crescent, Wuse II, Abuja. Comfort Amos is a member of the church choir where Timothy Taiwo Obafemi (Toni’s Father) is the Deputy HOD of the choir.

Comfort Amos unusually sat where the nursing mothers sat in church on Sunday and particularly sat beside Mariah Toyin Obafemi (Toni’s mother), who is also a Sunday School teacher.

Comfort carried and played with Toniloba and after some minutes, requested that she wanted to go give her house-help money for ‘offering’ in the children’s church. She left with Toniloba.

After some minutes, Toyin got unsettled and decided to go look for Comfort. All efforts to track Comfort since then has been unsuccessful.

Wole Shonibare, a church member called Comfort and she confirmed she was at Jabi Park and when she was advised to return the baby, she snapped back then retorted that she will return the baby. All efforts to speak with Comfort afterwards has proved abortive.

Toni is a 9month old baby while Comfort is between the ages of 40/41 years old.

She was last traced to Shendam in Plateau State.

Anyone with useful information should please contact the child’s parents directly on 08075672060 and 08064966277 or the nearest police station. Please do assist in the search.


  1. Sorry but the mother was very very careless! Ha! How can you allow a total stranger go away with your child of 9 months for that matter? Common woman you should be ashamed of yourself! Even your baby will not be happy with you that you allowed a stranger to take him away just like that. I pray you find your baby bcause who knows what the woman wants him for?? She may be a childless woman looking for a baby desperately or worst a ritualist but I pray God rescues your baby for you.
