The children, aged between two and 10 years, were kidnapped from various locations within the state capital and trafficked in Anambra State.

The Kano State Police Command has arrested eight suspects involved in
the kidnapping and trafficking of nine children.

The victims have been reunited with their relatives.

The children, aged between two and 10 years, were kidnapped from
various locations within the state capital and trafficked in Anambra
State.

The Commissioner of Police in the state, Ahmed Iliyasu, who handed the
kids to their relatives, said some of them were abducted in 2014.

Eight suspects were arrested in connection with the alleged kidnapping
and trafficking of the children.

Parading the suspects at the command’s headquarters, Iliyasu said one
Sagir Mohammed Bako had alerted them about the mysterious
disappearance of children from neighbourhoods across the state
capital.

According to him, the ring leader, Paul Onwe and his wife, Mercy while
moving one of their kidnapped victims, Haruna Sagir Bako, to Onisha.

The police chief stated that Bako was kidnapped on September 11, 2019,
on his way home from Islamiyya School at Yankaba quarters, of the
state capital.

He added that the suspects’ confessions during interrogation led the
command to extend its investigation to Anambra State where eight other
trafficked children were sold.

Ten-year-old Farouq, renamed Onyedikabo Ogbodo, shared his experience:
“When Paul brought me to Onitsha, there was a man called Emma. I saw
this one (pointing at one of the victims). There is another one that
has gone. They were playing and Emma bought me Cheese balls before
Aunty Ebere came and took me up and later took me to the hospital.

Farooq, who could not recall the name of his biological father, said
he was in Basic 4 in a primary school in Onitsha.

Iliyasu said, “The suspects confessed to have conspired among
themselves and kidnapped various children from areas like Sauna,
Kwanar Jaba, Kawo, Hotoro, Yankaba and Dakata quarters, all within the
Kano metropolis.’’
