The Abia State Police Command has announced the arrest of a suspected child trafficker, Obinna Ibe, for allegedly kidnapping three young girls and transporting them to Ghana.
The news of the arrest was contained in a statement signed by the Abia Police PRO, Maureen Chinaka, and made available to newsmen in Aba.
The suspect, who was arrested on March 8 by Isuochi Divisional Police Headquarters, is an indigene of Achara Isuochi in Umunneochi LGA of Abia.
Chinaka said the arrest was made possible through the information that the victims’ parents relayed to the police.
“Onyekwere Christian (male) and Nneka Nwokoma (female), both from Achara and Amuda Isuochi, reported that their daughters had been missing for over a week.
“The missing girls were identified as Goodness Onyekwere, 15, Ezinwanne Onyekwere, 16, and Viviane Ndukwe,13.
“In response, the Police promptly initiated an investigation that diligently pursued available leads and evidence to determine the missing girls’ whereabouts.
“The result of that meticulous investigative effort was the successful arrest of the suspect connected to the case by police in that division,” she said.
