About 10 kidnappers and child traffickers who specialize in stealing and selling of children have been arrested and paraded at the Peoples House, Makurdi, Benue State.
They were paraded alongside their victims. Six School children have been rescued, some were united with their parents while some are yet to identify their parents.
The revelation was made by the Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom while addressing newsmen at the old banquet hall in Makurdi.
The Governor said that the kidnappers and other criminals have no place in Benue as he called on the people of the state to remain resolute and assist the security agencies to apprehend more criminals in the State as his government will continue to do its best to chase away criminals so as to pave the way for investors to come in.
Those paraded were Adejo Ogiri who is said to be the syndicate’s anchor man in Benue, Michael Uzochukwu Ezekiel, Afonne Edward Nwokocha, Henry Ndukwe and Ifeanyi Sunday Isaac.
