In an apparent crackdown against kidnapping in Anambra State, the state police command has rescued three more Abducted children.
Recall that in October 11, the Kano State Police Command had paraded a suspected gang of six Igbo kidnappers for allegedly abducting nine children and trafficking them to Anambra State.
The children were said to have been forcefully converted to Christianity.
However, today (Friday), the Police Public Relations Officer of Anambra command, Haruna Mohammed announced the rescue of three more children in a statement sent to DAILY NIGERIAN.
According to him, two boys and one girl were allegedly trafficked from Anambra to Delta states.
He said: The following children (2 boys and one girl) were allegedly trafficked in Anambra State and rescued in Delta State since June 2018.
“Anyone with useful information about the children should report at the nearest Police Station or contact PPRO Anambra State Police Command headquarters Awka through GSM no 08060970639, please.”
Although the police command did not reveal the identities and the state from which the children were kidnapped, insiders told DAILY NIGERIAN that the children are suspected to have been stolen from the Northern part of the country.
The source added that the kidnappers had already secured international passports for the children to be trafficked out of the country.
