Speaking to newsmen while presenting the rescued children to their parents, the state’s Commissioner for Police, John Abang, said the children who were rescued in the Anambra State through intelligent network of security operatives in the state.
While parading the suspected kidnappers, Mr Abang said Blessings John, the principal suspect, claimed to be the biological mother of one of the children while adding that the other child belonged to her late sister.
