Police arrest four suspected child traffickers in Rivers
The Rivers State Police Command has arrested four suspected child traffickers in the state.
The suspects include 3 females and 1 male.
The State Command, in a statement by its Public Relations officer, Grace Iringe-Koko said the arrest was made after a complaint by one Precious Friday from Ubima Community in Ikwerre Local Government Area of the state.
Iringe-Koko said Friday raised the alarm after her child went missing, which prompted operatives of the Commissioner of Police Monitoring Unit of the Command, to move into the area, leading to the arrest of Mercy Enyindah.
She noted that Enyindah confessed to have stolen the child and 2 other children, along with her accomplice, Amaka Ewuzie.
This led to the arrest of another suspect, Chialuka Iheanacho and her husband, Chukwuma Iheanacho in Delta State, who are alleged to be members of the kidnap syndicate.
Iringe-Koko revealed that while other members of the gang were still being trailed, some of the children rescued had reunited with their parents, while efforts were ongoing to rescue two-year-old Jasper Friday, who was reportedly sold at Asaba.
