Nine year old twins abandoned in the house for months. A couple from New Hampshire took three of their children and left to Nigeria, leaving their nine year old twins by themselves for four months.
According to Manchester police reports, the uncle of the twins, Giobari Atura of 25 years old, had informed the children that he would come by every two days to bring them food. Statement which made the police to wonder if it was true, as when they found the kids in November, there was no trace of edible food in the house or refrigerator. They only found some noodles in a cabinet.
Their uncle, Atura, was charged in December, with the misdemeanor of endangering the welfare of a child. He was released after his $500 bail had been paid.
Giobari Altura’s older brother, and the father of the twins, Jerusalem Monday, left with his wife and three of his children to Nigeria. They were planning to leave in July and return in August.
Thursday, the door of their apartment was partially opened, but when knocking, no one answered. Thee phone number listed as belonging to Jerusalem Monday, was not working. One of the neighbors, Christaly Gracia, said that she didn’t recall having seen the two boys, and even if she had she wouldn’t remember their faces as there are a lot of children in the apartment complex from Manchester,New Hampshire.
The case arrived to the police, in November, when the school officials where the boys were going, told the Division of Children Youth and Families that the two boys had been by themselves for months. The kids were taking the bus to school on their own and they were having breakfast and lunch at school. Both of them were placed under foster care.
After finding out that the children had been left alone, the parents returned home. Since they left them in the care of a relative, they cannot be charged and now the boys are back with their parents, stated Michael Valentine, Assistant Hillsborough County Attorney.
Their uncle confessed to the police that he would stop by the house every three days, and told the twins to call him if they needed something. But the police notes, reported there wasn’t found any operable phone in the apartment.
After the police talked with the parents, they found out that they had told Atura to stay at the apartment, and when he couldn’t he should contact a family friend, whose number they gave him. While being away, they talked frequently with Atura, who assured them the boys were alright. The parents, declared to the police that they had been held up by passport problems and health issues.
