A restaurant owner, Chimezie Agubata has been arrested by the Imo State Police Command in Owerri for allegedly abducting three children and selling two of them.
As well as operating a restaurant in City Garden Resort, at Banana Junction, Amaifeke, Agubata also manages an orphanage home, God’s Favour Orphanage Home, in Okporo.
A widow, Mrs. Esther Agwu revealed how Agubata allegedly abducted her three children and sold off two of them in exchange for money.
According to Mrs. Agwu, she was working for Agubata when the suspects allegedly abducted the children under the guise that he was taking care of them.
The widow said it was by God’s grace that her eldest child escaped from Agubata’s home when he noticed that his siblings had been given to two different persons, who took them away in different vehicles.
The widow said the suspect promised to offer her a job without knowing that he was in the business of abducting and selling children.
