OWERRI— About eight children recently stolen from some communities in Imo State have been recovered by the State Police Command.
The current development, according to a police source, may have finally burst the child stealing syndicate that has troubled residents of the state for sometime.
Vanguard investigations revealed that the lucky children were recovered in Enugu and Anambra states, by a team of crack detectives, following credible information made available to them.
The success story started last Sunday, when a middle-aged woman was apprehended by the vigilante group of Nekede community and quickly handed over to the police for investigation.
It was also gathered that as soon as the kidnap suspect was thoroughly grilled by the police, she released the name of her sponsor, resident in Enugu.
“The police quickly moved to Enugu, arrested the person, released three children in her custody and moved them to Owerri,” the police officer recounted.
Some of the children, who are now reunited with their parents, include those kidnapped after attending children’s mass at Saint Mulumba’s Catholic Parish, Owerri.
All those who spoke to Vanguard on the issue, commended the police for breaking the dreaded criminal gang that has kept parents sleepless in Imo.
They appealed to security agencies to ensure that all the persons connected to the criminal act were promptly made to face the full weight of the law.
