The Anambra State police command have arrested three women suspected to be members of a child stealing syndicate in the state and also rescued two male kids allegedly abducted by the suspects.
Confirming their arrest, the State Police Public Relations Officer, Haruna Mohammed, said the suspects were intercepted at the Nkpor market/Tarzan junction with two male kids aged two and four respectively.
He further said, “They could neither give a satisfactory explanation about the children nor where they got them. Case is under investigation after which suspects would be charged to court for prosecution.”
The Commissioner of Police, John B. Abang, has urged parents whose children got missing and fall within the said age bracket, to report at the PPRO’s office at the state command headquarters, Awka, for proper identification and collection of their children.
