The Lady pictured above right identified as Faith Nuhu has been arrested by the Abuja police command after she kidnapped her sister's three children, Grace Musa Idris,13, Philip Musa Idris, 3, and Paul Musa Idris from their home in Kafachan, Kaduna State on the pretext of going to buy them biscuits. She then took the children to a motor park, where she boarded a vehicle to Owerri where she sold two of them at N600,000 to one Evelyn Ojiaku, who operates an illegal maternity home at Owerri, Imo State.
According to a report by The Sun, Faith works with a medical doctor and four others in a 6 man child trafficking syndicate.
After kidnapping her sister's children, Faith in company of other members of the kidnapping gang were on their way to Owerri when they decided to drop the eldest of the children, Grace, along the Abuja-Jos highway because they felt she was too old and was intelligent enough to understand what was going on. After wandering on the road for hours, a motorist stopped on the road and inquired from the little girl what she was doing on the road. She told them what happened. The police was alerted and after a comprehensive analytical tracking system, Faith was arrested. When interrogated, she confessed to being part of a kidnapping and child trafficking syndicate. She then led the police to other members of her gang in Edo and Imo state.
Among the other members of the gang are Chigozie Goodwill, Mrs. Evelyn Ojiaku who operates a private hospital, John Ojiaku, Elizabeth Onyemaobi, and Dr. Amadi Godwin Uzoma.
When the suspects were paraded before newsmen at the Force headquarters Abuja, the Force Public Relations Officer said one of the suspects, Evelyn Ojiaku operates a private hospital, Royal Maternity/Clinic and child service around the Umuyi Akaba Ikeduru, off Kilometer 6, Owerri-Okigwe, road and also engages in sale of children. The police also revealed that the woman had earlier bought a day old baby belonging to Faith Nuhu, for N100,000 and that she operates her illegal maternity home with the connivance with one of her sons, John Ojiaku.
