A suspected child tr@fficker, Maureen Wechinwu, who was arrested in Rivers State with 15 abd#cted children has confessed that she ‘bu¥s’ them.
The 44-year-old suspect, who claims to be a Reverend Sister, was arrested at Omuigwe Abuja Phase II, Aluu, in Ikwerre LGA for alleged child tr@fficking.
Speaking to newsmen at the police headquarters on Tuesday, September 6, the suspect claimed that she used to be a Reverend Sister trained in England and her orphanage is genuine.
“Some of the children are m@d people’s children. The others are brought to me by one Mr. Victor. Sometimes he comes with them in twos. One Miss Alice brought two to me. Alice said since I am a beginner that I should take them.
Sometimes when Victor brings children, he will be demanding money. But due to the pressure on me sometimes I give N50,000, N60,000, and N100,000,” she said.
The Commissioner of Police, Friday Eboka, revealed that the children rescued from the suspected tr@fficker were aged between seven and nine, adding that preliminary investigations have shown that the children were picked from different parts of the South-South states and were being s@ld.
He said it took over 24 hours before the children were able to narrate their experiences to the police, adding that they were being t@rtured and maybe hypn@tised as well.
