The Police Command in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) has rescued over 15 children being trafficked on Monday, March 8, 2021.
The Command also said it has successfully reunited the 15 trafficked children with their parents at the FCT.
It was gathered that the children, between the ages of two and 10, were taken away from their parents at Lapai, Niger State in February.
The FCT Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Mariam Yusuf, stated this in a statement in Abuja on Tuesday.
She insisted that the command is committed to protecting lives and property in the FCT and urged the residents to report suspicious movements by calling the emergency or distress lines through 08032003913, 08061581938, 07057337653, and 08028940883.
In another development, the PPRO of the FCT has dissociated the command from misleading information by “fraudulent elements’’ on the auctioning of cars.
She described the information as one of the antics of fraudsters in defrauding unsuspecting citizens.
