When it comes down to the final truth, only one person killed 3 year old Mikaeel Kular and that person was his mother, Rosdeep Adekoya. The infuriating truth of the matter is that this woman should not have been able to commit this atrocity because Mikaeel, and his four other siblings, should not have been in the custody of Rosdeep Adekoya in the first place. Not since all five of her children were being monitored after previous instances of neglect and abuse, not since Mikaeel and his twin sister had previously been placed in foster care for being abused by their mother.
Social services returned a dangerously at-risk child to the custody of a woman whose ultimate aim was to harm him. Then, when Rosdeep Adekoya moved home, they ‘lost track of him’ because agencies in Fife and Edinburgh failed to communicate with each other resulting in Mikaeel no longer being monitored and thus, tragically, left to suffer and die alone and unprotected at the hands of his unfit mother.
How the hell does this happen? in this day and age where almost our every move is recorded, our personal data is stored and viewed, even our emails and phonecalls are supposedly monitored – how do two government agencies lose all trace of the whereabouts of a child whose mother is claiming benefits, withdrawing them from bank machines, whose children are attending school…how does all this information not provide even the smallest indication as to where a child might be located?
And what about family…friends? why were none of them approached for information when Mikaeel and his siblings were taken from Fife to Edinburgh in December 2013? rental agencies, redirection of mail, mobile phone records…all of these will lead the tax man to your door in a flash if you try to defraud him of a few pounds, but for some inexplicable reason not social services to a child on borrowed time.
Mikaeel should never have been returned to his mother, after abuse occurs just once the removal of the child from the abusive parent should be swift and permanent, make adoption just a bit easier and give children like Mikaeel a chance to live and be loved. Some children escape abuse and neglect by growing up and out of it, other children like Mikaeel never escape because nobody saves them and in reply we hear the usual claims ‘lessons will be learned’….sane responses from an insane system.
