The Police Command in Abia State, on Tuesday, rescued two children allegedly abducted by child-traffickers.
The Command’s Public Relations Officer, SP Geoffrey Ogbonna confirmed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), in Aba, that they were still investigating and making effort to find one of the child’s parents.
Ogbonna, therefore, asked parents whose male child was abducted to contact the command for verification and release.
He stated, “One of the two, who was stolen from Abayi-Umuocham in Aba has been handed over to his parents,” adding that the police were having difficulty identifying the second child’s parents.
The police spokesperson disclosed that the child could not say his name or address of his parents because he was tender and still with the police while the search for his parents continued.
He noted that the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) of the Police Command under SP Johnbull Obioguru rescued the children from those who bought them in Lagos State and Port Harcourt, Rivers State, respectively.
He also cautioned parents not to leave their children to others or letting them go out of their sight.
