Police Reunite Parents With Missing Child In Abia


A missing boy, Joseph Okafor, has been reunited with his parents by the Abia State Police Command after he was allegedly found with a strange woman in Imo State.

The State Commissioner of Police, Adeleye Oyebade, said the boy who is an indigene of Abia State was kidnapped from his father’s residence on May 27, 2015.

He was later found this year at Okigwe in Imo State, in the custody of a foster mother who claimed the late husband adopted him.

Handing over Joseph to his parents, Mr Oyebade vowed to ensure child stealing and kidnapping among other crimes were eradicated from the state.

He also warned those involved in the act of stealing children to desist, saying that the police would ensure that their activities were exposed.

The Police Commissioner further urged the public to make inquiry of the type of adoption services they patronise, stating that anyone found wanting would face the full wrath of the law.
