A 15-year-old girl identified as Precious Ehiedo has just been arrested by the Imo state police for stealing and selling two siblings in order to raise money for her West African Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
Ehiedo was also arrested alongside two others Juliet Ogben and Favour Okoh. The siblings were reportedly between the ages of two and seven for N800,000. While handing over one of the babies to the parent, the state Commissioner of Police Dasuki Galadanchi said that the siblings were abducted from Ehime Mbano local government area of Imo state.
It was further revealed that Ehiedo was advised by her parents to steal and sell children in order to raise money for her exam registration.
Galadanchi said: “On November 13 at around 9am, one Precious Ehiedo, 15, daughter of Mr and Mrs Romeo and Uchechi Ehiedo, resident at Ogbuaku in Mbaitoli LGA of Imo state but natives of Abraka in Delta state, requested from her parents money for the SSCE registration. Her parents told her to go and steal children for them to sell in order to raise money for her examination. Being familiar with the two children at her maternal home, Umuezeala Ama, in Ehime Mbano LGA of Imo state, she stole the children. The girl and her father left for Mbano, but the father stopped at the Amaraku Market square, waiting for his daughter to hand over the children, who he had instructed her to steal. The 15-year-old met the children playing, stole them and joined her father at the Amaraku Market and both left with the children to Ogbaku. The children were sold to one Mama Joy at the rate of N800,000. Mama Joy, with one Favour Okoh, resold one of the children to one Juliet Ogbor for N750,000.”
The commissioner of police further disclosed that one of the children, Chiemerem, was recovered on Monday, December 15 at Agbor in Delta state. He added that the suspects will be arraigned in court soon.
