Elo, who was in the church with her parents, was left in the care of their maid like her two siblings when she went missing.

Massive search party was immediately launched for her but all efforts have come to naught as at press time raising apprehension that she may have been kidnapped by suspected ransom seekers or ritualist.

“Cake was shared for the children during the thanksgiving service and the maid went to get the kids’ slices. But when she returned, she discovered that Elo was not on her seat again.

“We got information from a child that he saw Elo outside the tent where they had the children thanksgiving service. The kid said after Elo came out of the tent, a woman grabbed her hand and took her away,” the Personal Assistant to Elo’s father, Solo Cosmos told Punch.
