The Ebonyi State Police Command has arrested a notorious syndicate who specialized in child stealing/ trafficking.
State Commissioner of Police, Peace Ibekwe Abdallah said the suspects, who were arrested on July 16, 2016 at Uburu Ohaozara LGA, came to the area with a Toyota Camry car with registration No. BEN-173-AU to unleash their wicked act on the people. Their names are; Anthonia Okeke, Chukwuka Muonye and Raphael Kanwei (pictured with other arrested suspects)
"In the course of investigation, one Esther Agbowo of Nkalagu in Ishielu LGA in company of her father reported that she was lured with her two children to Delta State by one Ekene who claimed to be a Pastor in the guise of marriage after introduction rites to her people," Ms Abdallah said. 
"While she was with him at Asaba, she was abandoned by the man and her two kids were taken away from her and sold off. The operatives of Anti-kidnapping team of the command swung into action with Raphael as a pointer and in the process the suspects who took the kids either passed through in the course of selling and those that bought them were apprehended," she added.
