Two Abducted Children Rescued in Anambra

Two of the three children from the same family, who were abducted by a motorcyclist in Amaba Ime, Ikwuano LGA of Abia State, have been rescued and reunited with their parents.

The children were found in Ekwulobia and Nkpor, two towns in Anambra State, by security operatives. The rescue was confirmed by Mr. Osinachi Nwaka, Chairman of Ikwuano LGA, during a meeting with members of the Online Media Practitioners Association of Nigeria, Abia State chapter, led by Promise Uzoma Okoro.

Mr. Nwaka revealed that a Reverend Sister, who is a member of a child trafficking syndicate, has been arrested and is currently detained by the police. He explained that the disappearance of the three children caused him considerable distress, prompting him to organize several meetings with various security agencies.

The Ikwuano LGA Chairman praised the efforts of Governor Alex Otti, the Abia State Commissioner of Police, and other security agency leaders in the rescue operation. He expressed confidence that the remaining child would soon be found.

Mr. Nwaka called for the cooperation of OMPAN members and the general public to uncover and prosecute those involved in the child trafficking network, ensuring a safer Abia. “There are syndicates in every local government that trade in children. It amazes me that a man paid N1.8m to buy one of the boys. A Reverend Sister acts as the middle person, distributing the children and taking her cut. She is currently in state CID custody,” Nwaka said.

He advised parents to be vigilant about their children’s whereabouts and urged schools not to send pupils away due to unpaid school fees.
