Nigerian Parents left their Twins in the US and Traveled to Nigeria
Nigerian parents Jerusalem and Gladys Monday, have lost custody of their 9 yr old twins after they left them mostly to themselves in their New Hampshire apartment for four months and traveled to Nigeria. They left their twins in the care of an uncle Atura, who hardly visited the kids.
Jerusalem Monday and his wife and three of their kids left the US for Nigeria in July, intending to return in August. They told police they were delayed by illness and passport problems.
The case came to light in November when officials at the boys’ school told the state Division of Children, Youth and Families that the twins had been living on their own for months. The boys were taken into protective custody and then placed into foster care.
In an interview with police, one of the boys said “he felt lonely while staying at their own house because his mom and dad were not there and nobody was with them“.
When police finally reached the parents, they said they had instructed Atura to stay at the apartment, and if he couldn’t, they gave him the name of a family friend to contact. The parents said they stayed in phone contact with Atura, who assured them everything was fine.
