Good News! Police Rescue 2 Children From Child-Stealing Group
The Osun State Police Command has rescued two additional stolen children from a suspected child-stealing gang already in its custody.
Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr Olafimihan Adeoye, disclosed this yesterday while parading the suspects at the Command Headquarters in Osogbo.
He said the recovery of the two additional children was made possible through the earlier media reports of the arrest of the gang.
“Two weeks ago, the media widely reported the arrest of two people, a Reverend father and a woman, by the command, who kidnapped and later sold an 18-month-old baby boy they stole in Osogbo.
“This report prompted a couple from Ganmon area in Kwara, whose three and five-year-old daughters were stolen in Ilorin, to check with the Command to see if those arrested were the same people who stole their daughters.
“When the couple saw the suspects in our custody, it was discovered that it was the same gang that stole their daughters and further investigation launched by the Command led to the recovery of their children,” Mr Adeoye said.
