Two policemen arrested for kidnapping minors in Sokoto

The Sokoto State Police Command has confirmed the arrest of some of its officers allegedly involved in the kidnapping of minors in the state.

The spokesman for the command, ASP Ahmad Rufai, who confirmed the arrest of the officers simply identified as ASP Kulu and one other named Elizabeth, said the command has commenced investigations into the alleged abduction of five children from the state.

Recall that an Assistant Superintendent of Police, ASP Kulu, alongside her accomplice, Elizabeth, were arrested by the FCT police command for allegedly abducting five children, including a less than two-week-old baby girl in the state.

Rufai said, “Both the suspects and victims were transferred and handed over to the command from FCT police command for further investigation into the matter.”

Among those abducted were three toddlers under the age of two, and a five-year-old named Asmau Ya’u, who was reportedly abducted while on her way to an Islamiyya school in Sokoto.

The suspects were said to have been arrested while travelling from Sokoto to Abuja in an 18-seater commercial bus when some passengers alerted the police near Abuja after noticing that the custodians of the children could not breastfeed them during the seven-hour journey.

The state official of the Human Rights Network, Sirajo Madawaki, said the case was transferred to the network office in the state from Abuja, and an investigation into the case has since begun.

Madawaki assured that the network would pursue the case to its logical conclusion and ensure that the suspects were prosecuted and the children reunited with their respective parents.

The suspect, ASP Kulu, who was said to be serving with the Kubwa Division, had applied for leave, which was not granted before her trip to Sokoto.
