Ola ‘Kiya, Reporting

OPERATIVES of the Rivers State Police Command have busted a child-trafficking ring operating in the state and other neighbouring states.

The spokesperson of the Command Grace Iringe-Koko disclosed this on Friday in Port Harcourt.

He said four suspects were arrested in connection with the crime.

The suspects were made up of three females and one male, and said to be involved in the kidnap, sale, and purchase of children within Rivers, Imo, and Delta states where the syndicate is believed to operate.

Some of the suspects admitted to buying or selling the kids, with one of them saying she paid N1.5m for three children.

Stonix News reports that two children have been rescued while the police are still searching for one child believed to have been sold to a buyer in Asaba, Delta State.

Efforts are still on to track down other suspects in the syndicate.
