Suleja missing children: Police rescue 10, arrest three suspects
Niger State Police Command has unraveled the mystery behind missing children in Suleja by rescuing 10 victims and arresting three suspects.
Recall that on October 20, 2022, at about 11.25a.m., a case of abduction of two children was reported at ‘B’ Division Police Station Suleja.
According to the report, two children of ages five and three, both male and female of the Water Board area of Suleja were reported missing on October 19, 2022, and were suspected to have been taken away by a new tenant, who just moved into the compound.
Responding to the issue, the Command’s spokesperson, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), Wasiu Abiodun, in a statement yesterday, said the landlord and agent, who leased the apartment to the suspected tenants, were invited for interrogation, as the matter was transferred to State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID), Minna, for discreet investigation.
He said: “In the course of painstaking investigation, the Anti-kidnapping unit of the Command trailed the suspects and arrested one Saviour Ebuka, 20 and Mary Peter, 25, at Tunga-Maje.”
