Abducted Kids Sold For N200,000 Reunite With Parents
They were abducted and sold for N200,000 in Akure three weeks ago.
The abductor became a tenant in the house the children lived with their patents just to perfect her plan of abducting the kids.
When the plan of Mary Paul worked out accordingly, she ran to Imo state to complete the deal of selling them.
But she ran out of luck as she was arrested by the police.
The Imo State Commissioner of Police, Dasuki Galadanchi said the kids - Unmi Isiaku,5, and Habib Awalu, 7, have been retrieved from their abductor and reunited with their parents.
“I want to hand over these two children – Unmi and Habib – to their fathers. But before I do that, let me show you the woman who stole them three weeks ago in Ondo State.
“The suspect, Mary Paul, became a tenant in the compound where the children were living with their parents. She stayed for only four days before she stole the kids.
“These children were part of the 11 children we rescued a few weeks ago. These children – a boy and a girl – were stolen three weeks ago. By the grace of God, my men from the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad rescued them and arrested the suspect.
“We must preach against trafficking in human beings. Children are special gifts from God and we must work hard to protect them.
“After stealing these children in Ondo State, the suspect, who hails from Cross River State, ran to Imo State to sell them.
“The amount she sold the children will tell you that some people have sold their souls to the devil. We must keep uncovering them. I assure you that this woman will not go unpunished. We will charge her to court.”
In an interview, the suspect said she sold the children for N200,000.
“I rented an apartment in Ondo State, in the same compound where the parents of the children were living with the sole aim of abducting Unmi and Habib.”
