A woman, Patience Isua, has lost custody of her three-year-old twin boys for allegedly videoing them while making love.
She was said to have sent the video recording to the twins father, Emmanuel Ikanta, who took the clip to the police.
The children were taken from their mother’s 2, Olugbemiga Ladipo, Ado in Ajah, Lagos home, on Tuesday night by Police Commissioner Imohimi Edgal and some officials of the Ministry of Women Affairs.
She said she usually told him the kids behaved strangely whenever they returned from his place. Their father, she claimed, would hang up on her after saying “and so?”
Isua said Ikanta left her last year, adding that he is co-habiting with a woman, who she alleged is corrupting her kids.
Asked by Edgal who made the video, she said:
“Yes, I took the video myself. He was not around when I sent it to him. My children stay with me and they stay with him as well. He comes to pick the children to wherever he is staying.
“We have been living apart since last year that he took me to a human rights organisation. It was agreed that he should have 12 hours with the kids at weekends but he did not stick to the agreement. Sometimes, he took them with him for many days and when they came back, they usually exhibited strange behaviours.
“I am aware that he lives with an older woman. So, he takes them there and whenever they are there, I get worried because I do not know what my children are going through in the hands of the woman.
“Somebody trained my boys to practice such devilish act. This is an abuse. I do not know who trained them to be like this. Before I saw them and videoed it, I had told their father that whenever they came back from his house they usually complained of pain.
