Omoawori speaking on the incident said: “I felt terrible about the experience; we were shooting a video for my song the day I almost lost my child to kidnappers. His crèche is not far from where I stay and on that day, a teacher in his school summoned someone to call me, that a young boy came to them under the guise that I sent him to pick my child. Upon investigation, we realised that he wanted to abduct my son from the crèche.”
The fast rising singer revealed further what they found on the boy after he was searched. He said:
“When we searched him, we found a mystical ring with the young man who tried to kidnap my one-year-old son, Samson Isiba. I don’t feel secure anymore because I feel someone is trying to get at me.”
He also said because of this bitter experience, he is making plans to relocate from Abesan Estate, Ipaja, as he no longer feels secure in the environment:
“I have to change my location because of this terrible experience.”
