Salient Times gahered that Mrs. Ishola was supposed to be circumcised alongside her 3 daughters namely; Ishola Roqeebat Abike 16, Ishola Habitat Olasile 11 and Ishola Ameerat Tomiwa 9 while her 3 sons; Ishola Roqeeb Olayinka 14, Ishola Faruk Adeola 12 and Ishola Al-Ameen Akinola were to be initiated as young members into the Ogboni Confraternity as part of the right of passage for their father's family lineage.   
          

Drama was said to have begun when Ishola with her six children pounced on her captors who were said to have taken them away forcefully from their 1, Abisola Street, Elega, Abeokuta, Ogun State residence without their consent and battered them while struggling to escape from the shrine.
