Governor OTTI receives 3 siblings rescued one month after being abducted on way home from school

Monday, June 17, 2024
 - Three children of the same parents who were abducted one month ago have been reunited with their parents after they were received by the state Governor, Alex Otti. 

The three children, Gideon, Divine and Israel, aged eight, six and four years respectively were abducted on their way home from school on May 10, 2024. 

Receiving the children alongside their parents and other well wishers at his country home in Nvosi, Isiala Ngwa South LGA, the Governor thanked God and all those who worked hard to ensure their rescue. He expressed joy that the children have finally been reunited with their parents and used the forum to admonish parents to be more careful about the safety and security of their children. 

He said: “I will like to also admonish parents to be more careful, because this was avoidable. First of all, you should not hand over your children to people you do not know, be they Keke or Okada riders. There is nothing you’re doing that is more important than looking after your children. That is my word to parents, grandparents and everybody who have something to do with one Abia child or another.

“It is very important that we take their security, comfort and safety very seriously. A lot of lessons have been learnt from this and I believe we shouldn’t let this kind of thing repeat itself."

ASP Maureen Chinaka, the State command PPRO, in a statement said the suspects, Rev Sister Pauline Alozie, Chizoba DJ, Glory Umuna, Georgina Nonye and Philip Ibe, were arrested at Amawbia and Nkpor in Anambra State, and Warri in Delta State. 

The statement added that the suspects are currently in the custody of the police and will soon be charged to court.
