Men of the Maiduguri police command have arrested a suspected child trafficker identified as Nsa Heneswa for allegedly abducting two Almajiri children and a two-year-old girl.
The Borno Commissioner of Police(CP), Abdu Umar, speaking with NAN said the suspect was arrested at the Borno Express Motor Park on the 4th of August.
Umar said the suspect arrived in Maiduguri on Aug. 3 and went straight to the Monday market where she saw some vulnerable children popularly known as “Almajiri” begging on the road and abducted them.
He said the suspect got to the Yan’ Nono in the Bulumkutu area where she stole another child belonging to Mrs Amina Ayuba, a local fresh milk seller.
When she arrived at the motor park, she requested a vehicle going to Lagos but members of the union told her it had already left.
However, she ran out of luck after a commercial driver operating on the Abuja line at the motor park, became suspicious of the way the suspect was behaving and alerted the security and surveillance team at the motor park.
The CP said she was arrested and handed over to the Police for Investigation.
Speaking to NAN in police custody, she said,”honestly, this is the first time I am doing this. I have never done this before. A woman in Lagos introduced me to this.
”I also have a nurse who was assisting me in the Maiduguri Specialist Hospital,” she said.
