Abducted children reunited with parent in Kano. Kano State Governor Abba Yusuf reunited seven children from Bauchi State with their parents at the Government House in Kano on Friday.

The children were rescued by police after being kidnapped and sold in Anambra and Lagos states.

The governor praised the state police command, led by Commissioner of Police Usaini Gumel, for their efforts in rescuing the youngsters.

Yusuf, who expressed joy at the finding of seven children snatched from Bauchi and subsequently trafficked and sold in Anambra and Lagos states, was astounded by the criminal ring that specialized in the abduction, trafficking, and sale of children from the Northern states.

The governor asked parents to be attentive and watch their children’s whereabouts as well as the individuals they associate with in order to avoid becoming victims of human trafficking, abduction, kidnapping, and other social vices.

He also urged his counterpart, Bauchi State Governor Bala Mohammed, to take decisive legal action against the arrested offenders in order to discourage future criminals.

The governor also recalled the case of 11 Kano children who were reportedly abducted and sold in Anambra a few years ago.

Malam Saad, a parent of one of the stolen children, Abdulmutallif Saad, from Bauchi, emphasized his inability to completely express his appreciation to the G.
Kano State Governor and Commissioner of Police.

The Kano State Police Command nabbed nine criminals, who were brought alongside the children they took from Bauchi and intercepted at Mariri Motor Park in Kano while en route to Lagos.

Sha’awanatu Yusuf, Director of Public Prosecution at the state Ministry of Justice, spoke on behalf of the Bauchi state government, emphasizing Kano and Bauchi togetherness for the greater good.

She noted that the Bauchi State Government would take the appropriate legal actions to ensure that the accused face the full extent of the law.

Meanwhile, Kano state governor has provided N500,000 to each of the seven rescued youngsters to help with their trip to Bauchi.
