They were said to have explained to policemen at the command that their mother lives with them at Iju-Ishaga area of Lagos but that apprehension set in following her disappearance.
While efforts to find her was on, the children said they were shocked to read about her alleged transformation from a bird into a human being in some national dailies yesterday.
According to Police sources,”they said they have never known their mother to be a witch and wondered why such rumor was spread about her.
“They said she left home without informing them of where she was going. They were, however, happy that the publication made it easy for them to locate her and also expressed joy that she was not lynched in the process.”
The traditional ruler of Layeni, Baale Rafiu Olayemi, who stated emphatically that he did not believe the claim, said that he had to intervene during the panic and confusion by mobilising some of his loyalists to rescue the woman from the surging crowd before contacting the Police at Layeni.
