The Police in Anambra said it had recovered and reunited a child identified as Mmerichukwu, who was stolen at the aged of seven in 2012 with its parents.
In a statement on Wednesday, the Public Relations Officer of the state’s Command, Mr. Haruna Mohammed, said that the child was stolen from the biological mother, Mrs. Jennifer Azubuike.
“On May 29, at about 06:30 a.m., following intelligence report, Police detectives attached to the Command Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) arrested one Ifeyinwa Ezename, 50, and Caroline Mbonu, 75.
“Suspects had in 2012 conspired with one David Nwachukwu, now in prison custody and stole one Mmerichukwu Okoli, male, seven years old from the biological mother, Azubuike Jennifer.
“Consequently, the stolen child was recovered and reunited with his parents,” Mohammed stated.
He added that another eight-year-old child simply identified as Ifeoma was equally rescued from the suspects, who could not give a satisfactory account of the child.
