Police rescue three-year-old boy from kidnapper
On Thursday, the police in Ebonyi State found a three-year-old kid who had been missing and brought him home to Theresa Nweke in Abakaliki.

According to news sources, the boy was given to his mother by Chris Anyanwu, the state's police spokesperson.

The boy was saved from a 20-year-old suspected child trafficker, Anyanwu, superintendent of police, told reporters.

In the Afikpo-North Local Government Area of the state, he said that the female suspect (name withheld) resided at Evuma Road.

Anyanwu praised the accomplishment of the team of investigators from the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, under the direction of a superintendent of police named Miliscent Amadi.

“The boy’s mother is from Umuagwa in Port Harcourt.

“She left her son with her neighbours and that was how he got missing.

“His mother and the child are here and she has proved beyond reasonable doubt that she is his biological mother.

“We are here today to hand over the baby to his mother,” Anyanwu said.

The police spokesperson said the suspect claimed she was the biological mother of the boy but later sold him.

“The command is still investigating the matter and we shall leave no stone unturned to get to the root of how the boy got missing,” he said.

The child’s mother thanked God and the police for the boy’s rescue.

Narrating the incident, she said she regularly handed over the boy to the suspect to look after him because they were neighbours.

“I usually kept him with them whenever I was going to work. I work in a restaurant. I thank God that I have seen him alive,” Nweke said.
