Police operatives in Borno State have arrested a suspected child, identified as Nsa Heneswa, for allegedly abducting three children in Maiduguri, the state’s capital.
The suspect was arrested at the Borno Express Motor Park on August 4, 2022 while trying to escape with the three children, all of whom below 7 years.
Speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria, the state’s Commissioner of Police, Abdu Umar, said the suspect arrived in Maiduguri and went straight to the Monday market where she saw the children begging on the road and abducted them.
The suspect called one of the children and offered him N200. She then asked him to accompany her so that she can buy him some clothes.
She then went back to the town in search of another victim. She got to the Yan’ Nono in the Bulumkutu area where she stole another child belonging to Amina Ayuba, a local fresh milk seller.
