This Is Bad! Shock As Seven Stolen Children Are Recovered In Nassarawa

The Nasarawa State Police command on Thursday recovered seven children from a residential house in Masaka area of Nassarawa.
The suspect identified as Grace Etim was caught after investigations into her suspected involvement in the business of selling stolen children.
The command spokesman, DSP Idrisu Kennedy, confirming the development in Lafia said the suspect was arrested after a parent reported a stolen child case to the police station.
“On 16th January, 2018 one Mr Daniel Abu of Jama’a, in Keffi town came to Keffi police station and lodged a complaint of the disappearance of his three-year-old son, named Destiny Daniel, on the 15th January, 2018.
“Investigation into the complaint by detectives of the division led to the arrest of one Anthony Jatau of the same address.
“On interrogation, the suspect confessed to have stolen the child and sold him to a woman in Masaka, in Karu Local Government Area.
“When he led detectives to his accomplice in Masaka, one Mrs Grace Etim was arrested and the child recovered from her. Also recovered in her custody were six other children suspected to be stolen,” he said.
Idrisu further warned parents and guardians in the state against custodians they put in charge of their children following increasing rate of child kidnapping.
“The State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID) Lafia, has taken over the investigation with the aim of unravelling if the suspects belong to any syndicate that specializes in child theft and trafficking around Karu Local Government Area of the state.
“This became necessary following the spate of complaints by parents and guardians on the disappearance of their wards,” he added.
