Woman Bought Two Children From Kidnappers; A Boy At N450,000, A Girl At N150,000


Two of the eight children kidnapped between December last year and early January at Ishiagu, Akaeze in Ivo Local Government Area of Ebonyi State have been found.

Police sources say the two children were rescued in Owerri, ImoState, with the aid of members of the Criminal Investigation Department of Imo State Police Command, in the custody of a woman who allegedly bought them from the kidnappers for N600, 000.

The woman, whose name could not be immediately ascertained, was said to have paid N450,000 for the male child, while the female child was sold to her for N150,000, sources say.

Confirming the rescue, Ebonyi State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Sylvester Igbo, said the rescued children were in good condition, but he was waiting for a formal report from the Divisional Police Officers in charge of the Ivo LGA before briefing journalists.
