Officers of the Nigeria Police Force have arrested three members of child-stealing syndicate in Ogun, who specialize in stealing children from unsuspecting parents.
The suspects are Kate Njoku, Joy Okorie and Onyeka Joseph (male).
Temidayo Ajayi, one of the children recovered from the suspects was abducted with his brother in Sagamu July 2018, The Nation reports.
He has since been reunited with his parents while efforts are on to recover his brother from the gang.
Members of the syndicate were found to have succeeded in stealing eight children from different locations across Ogun State and sold them to their prospective buyers in Anambra State.
The syndicate’s mode of operation entails using two of their members to disguise as couple looking for an apartment to rent, most especially in a place where the target children reside.
The Police Public Relations Officer in Ogun state, Abimbola Oyeyemi, who made these known in a statement on Wednesday, said the manhunt launched for members of the syndicate led to the arrest of the three.
