Remember, yesterday, we reported the case of 3-year old twins whose mother, Patience Isua, filmed them kissing and practising homosexual acts, and later sent the footage to their father, Emmanuel Ikanta. Patience Isua, has lost custody of the three-year-old twin boys. They are now in the custody of the ministry of youths and social development of the Lagos state government.
The children were earlier taken from her Ajah, Lagos residence when her estranged husband complained at the Lagos State police command.
Ikanta had brought the footage to the notice of Commissioner of Police, Imohimi Edgal, who led officials of the state Ministry of Women Affairs to the woman’s residence on Tuesday night and took the children away.
Ikanta wanted full custody of the children, but after series of consultations, it was agreed that for the best interest of the children, none of the parents should have custody for now until it is clear what is actually happening to the children. According to the Commissioner of Police, Imohimi Edgal:
“Having discussed it with experts and also officials from the youths and social development, we are of the opinion that we cannot entrust these children to your care for now until we understand exactly what is going on. We would entrust the children to the ministry.
That is why they are here. They have shelters that are approved by the government and these shelters are purposely built for purposes such as this to ensure that children are protected by the state when the need arises.
