Rev Sister captured as police recover two stolen children in Anambra

Two out of the three children of the same parents, who were abducted by a motorcyclist in Amaba Ime, Ikwuano LGA of Abia State, have been rescued and brought back to their parents.

They were rescued in Ekwulobia and Nkpor, two different towns in Anambra State, by security operatives.

The rescue of the two children was confirmed by the Chairman of Ikwuano LGA, Mr Osinachi Nwaka when he received the members of Online Media Practitioners Association of Nigeria, Abia State chapter, led by Promise Uzoma Okoro.

The local government chairman, who disclosed that a Reverend Sister who is a member of a child trafficking syndicate has been arrested in connection with the case, added that the Reverend Sister is being detained by the police.

He noted that the disappearance of the three children gave him a sleepless night which prompted him to organize a series of meetings with various arms of security agencies.

The Ikwuano LGA Chairman, who praised the efforts of Governor Alex Otti, Abia State Commissioner of Police and heads of other security agencies in the state in the rescue of the children, assured that the remaining one will soon be found.

The Mayor solicited the cooperation of OMPAN members and the general public to unravel the masterminds of the illicit trade in order to bring them to book for a safer Abia.

“There are syndicates in every local government that trade on children. It amazes me that a man that bought one of the first boys paid N1.8m to buy life.

“A Reverend Sister is the middle person that distributes the children and collects her cut, she’s wearing white and still in state CID till today,” Nwama said.

He advised parents to be more careful about the whereabouts of their children and cautioned schools against sending pupils away from school because of non-payment of school fees.
