Corroborating the report, a relation to the woman, Mr Marthin Okoro, said he reported the matter to the commander of the Vigilante in the area.

“As soon as my niece was brought back home by a neighbour and narrated her ordeal, I immediately contacted the Commander of Umunze Vigilante Group, Jerry Ibeh, who quickly organized a search for the missing child,” he said.

President General of the community, Mr John Akanyionu, who confirmed the incident, said the community had formed a Youth Vigilante to further strengthen the existing one to fish out perpetrators of the acts.

The Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Haruna Muhammed, confirmed the incident, saying the victims were rescued from the suspects at about 8.30am following intelligence report.

He gave the names of the suspects as Emeka Nnorue (44) and Eberechi Onyeghara (14) from Imo state, Ekene Obodoako (27) from Ebonyi state, and Chika Obi (28) from Anambra state.

Mohammed assured that the suspects would be brought to justice after investigations were concluded.

He urged parents whose children were either stolen or missing to report at the State CIID Awka for identification of the already found children.

“The command will continue to serve and protect all citizens with integrity and in accordance with internationally accepted best practices,” he assured.
