Photos: Notorious Anambra Kidnappers Who Abduct Children & Sell For N500k Each, Nabbed


Here's how social media user Festus Nwaomucha, reports the incident:

"These people have been kidnapping children in my village (Ndemili) and its environ. The name of the guy is Emmanuel Udagwu from Agbor Alidinma while the name of the lady is Celestina Enebeli from Ulogwe Isumpe. Both communities have common boundaries with mine. They have confessed kidnapping about 9 children so far in the whole of that localities. On Sept 24th, they kidnapped my little niece GLORY OYIBO (5yrs) right in my family compound in the village. Since then efforts have been on top gear to recover the stolen child. Fortunately, luck ran out of them when 2 kids were found in their possessions by the police in Issele-Uku, a suburb of Asaba, the capital of Delta State on Monday, the 13th of Nov.

"On interrogation, they confessed to have been stealing children from my community and other neighbouring villages. When they kidnap children, they transport their victims to Asaba where a 70yr old woman received the victims for onward ferry to Eastern part for sales. However, the septuagenarian have confessed to have sold my little niece with another victim (a boy) for 500k in a popular city in the East, through another man in Asaba who outsmarted us during arrest, abandoning his taxi colour car. Therefore, I want to use this opportunity to thank all those who have been standing with my family through prayers, calls, visits, etc, since the sudden disappearance of our little daughter.

"Truly, your prayers and concerns have paid off, even as we are still requesting you to continue praying for GLORY to be alive in captivity so that she can be re-united someday and in good health with her parents and her other siblings, who have not ceased crying day and night since she was kidnapped. Thankyou. Meanwhile, investigation is still on going!"
