Anambra pastor arrested for kidnapping 12 kids

12 September 2016, 10:42

Abuja - The leader of a pentecostal church in Anambra State has been arrested following the discovery of 12 kidnapped minors in his possession.

According to a Naij report, police smashed a syndicate under the leadership of Pastor Chinedu, which is believed to have specialized in the buying and selling of children.

Chinedu is said to have paid N400,000 for each child sold to him, with the mother of one of the children raising the alarm on the matter when she claimed that she had been tricked and had her one-year-old child stolen from her.

“The complainant further disclosed that she followed them to a junction where they met one woman, Abigail (surname withheld), who gave her N3,500.00  and asked her to go and buy clothes for her daughter, Fatima Yahaya.

“In the process, the little girl was stolen by the syndicate. She, however, raised alarm that led to the arrest of 21-year-old Nnoruka and Chidinma, 20, while they were attempting to escape,” disclosed Zanna Ibrahim, Commissioner of Police.

Chinedu, including two others, is currently being held at the police headquarters in Asaba, Delta State, where he is facing interrogation, Bella Naija reports.
