Anambra Police Arrest 5 Kidnappers, Rescue 5 Victims
One wonders when the crime of kidnapping and child trafficking will be ended in Anambra and other states notorious for the crime.
Just in July, the Anambra police arrested a three-man syndicate behind the series of child stealing in the state and charged them to court.
In the last seven days alone, the police have again arrested five kidnappers/child traffickers and rescued five victims.
Mr Haruna Mohammed, the Public Relations Officer of the command, disclosed this in a statement on Friday in Awka.
Mohammed gave the names of the suspected kidnappers/child traffickers arrested as Emeka Nnoruo (44 years), Ekene Obodoako (27 years), Maduabuchi Ekwema ( 25 years) , Chika Obi (28 years), and Eberechi Onyeghara aged 14 years.
The suspects, all male, were arrested on August 27, 2018 at about 8.30 a.m following efforts of Joint Police/vigilante Patrol teams attached to Umunze in Orumba South Local Government Area of the state.
The suspects conspired and kidnapped five children namely: Ifeanyinchukwu Obiukwu ‘m’ (3years from Umunze), and Chigozie Emeka, 8 years from Okigwe.
Others equally kidnapped are: Chimaobi Emeka ‘f’ aged 6 years from Okigwe, Chisom Emeka aged 4 years from Okigwe and Onyiyechi Emeka ‘f’ aged 3 years of Okigwe.
The PPRO noted that investigation into the matter had begun after which the suspects would be charged to court.
