The kidnap of two children in Gombe and their eventual rescue in Anambra state has continued to generate reactions among Nigerians.
John Abang, the commissioner of police in Anambra, said that the two children have been reunited with their parents.
Daily Trust reports that the children were kidnapped while playing along with other children in their parents’ compound.
Legit.ng gathered that the three suspects arrested for the incident are: Patience Opia from Cross River, Ejece Obi from Anambra state and Blessing John from Bauchi state.
Abang said the children were kidnapped from Gombe state and were rescued in Anambra state, through intelligence network of security operatives in the state.
He said the children who were rescued and put in the welfare department of the police on sighting their parents, rushed and held them.
Abang said before the children were released, it was confirmed that people who came to claim them were truly their biological parents.
The commissioner of police said the principal suspect, Blessing John, had claimed that she was the biological mother of one of the children while the other one belonged to her late sister.
Abang also said that the suspects had concluded plans to sell each of the children at the cost of N750,000 before luck ran out on them.
According to the newspaper, their father, Abdulaziz Suleman, said the children were playing in their compound when they were kidnapped.
Suleman noted that they discovered their children were found in Anambra through the social media.
“One of our neighbours saw the pictures of the boys on the social media that they were rescued in Anambra state, and alerted us," he said.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that the police command in Anambra said they rescued two children from suspected traffickers in the southeast state.
