Nasarawa State Police arrested a woman who allegedly stole a three-year-old boy in the state.

State Police Commissioner Adesina Soyemi made the revelation by parading the woman and 18 other suspects in Lafia on Wednesday.

Mr. Soyemi said that the police, acting on the basis of the intelligence received, detained the woman in Garaku, the Kokona local government area of ​​the state.

He said preliminary investigations revealed that the alleged human smuggler and her accomplices had stolen the boy with the intention of selling him to a prophetess in Enugu state.

According to him, the smugglers took the boy to Enugu, but were unable to sell him, so they brought him back.

“So the suspect ran out of luck and was arrested, but other accomplices are still on the run,” Soyemi said.

He said the police command was working assiduously to arrest accomplices fleeing the alleged trafficker.

The PC said that the other 18 people who were paraded by the police were arrested in different parts of the state for various crimes, including alleged rape, cultism and sale of marijuana.

He said that all the cases had been transferred to the Criminal Investigation Department for further investigation, adding that investigations are immediately completed, the suspects will be prosecuted.
