Lady Nkechinyere Ugwu, the Honorable Commissioner for Women’s Affairs and Vulnerable Groups, has reaffirmed the Imo State Government’s and the Ministry’s commitment to upholding the laws against human trafficking.
The statement was made by Ugwu when Mr. Ernest Ogbu, the Imo State Commander of the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP), gave the Ministry six children and a pregnant girl who had been saved from child traffickers apprehended in Eziachi, Orlu Local Government.

Joy Duru, the principal, was taken into custody along with her four kids. After investigations revealed that one of the accomplices in the crime is not the child’s biological mother, a fifth child who belonged to her was saved.

An attempt is underway to retrieve a second child that the suspect admitted to selling to a family in Portharcourt. One of the sold children has been found and returned to her birth parents.

A pregnant woman and her unborn kid were also saved from the syndicate that purchases the children’s orphanage.

The 34 Artillery Brigade Obinze Imo State and NAPTIP worked together to conduct the investigations and make the ensuing arrests. The infants were saved from a network of human traffickers that specialized in kidnapping and selling children born in Imo State to a Portharcourt-based auxiliary nurse.
