A 34-year-old woman has been arrested by the Rivers State Police Command for alleged child-trafficking.

A self-acclaimed prophetess has landed in Police custody for child- trafficking.

Helen Christopher, 34 was arrested by the Rivers State Police Command with one 20 year old, Joy Olaka-Nworgu in a Church, Mountain of Deliverance Fire Ministries, in Ete-O, Eleme Local government area.

Four missing children were rescued during the police operation.

Spokesman of the Command, Nnamdi Omoni  said Helen operates with a group whose operation was smashed by men of the State Criminal Investigation Department.

He said Olaka-Nworgu had already confessed to committing the crime

“Men of the State CID smashed a child-trafficking syndicate run by one Madam Helen Christopher who runs a hilly home in Eleme. She’s 34 year from Akwa-Ibom.

“Our personnel acted on intelligence and trailed the suspect following series of complaints we have received about missing children in parts of Port Harcourt.''

However, the Prophetess denied the allegations saying, “I don’t know Joy before. I only met her when she came with a baby begging me to help her.

“She said I should give her N30,000 and keep the baby till she returns. I had to give her the money and warned that she must return to take the baby and refund my N30,000.

“I even took her to my alter to swear that she will refund my N30,000 and take the baby and she agreed. The only mistake I made was that I didn’t ask her where she got the baby.”

But Olaka-Nworgu told newsmen that she was initiated by Prophetess Helen to steal children.

Also speaking, Christophanus Achogbo who is the father of one of the rescued children said that the suspect took advantage of his maid.

“Since February this year, we have been looking for my son, Daniel only for the Police to call me that he has been found. He was 1 year and 4 month-old in February.

“I didn’t believe that the Police can still find him."
