According to Festus Nwaomucha, whose niece was also kidnapped by the duo, Emmanuel Udagwu and Celestina Enebeli have been kidnapping children in Ndemili and its environ. .
They have reportedly confessed to kidnapping about 9 children so far. On Sept 24, 2016, they kidnapped Nwaomucha’s 5-year-old little niece, Glory Oyibo, right inside their compound.
Since then efforts have been on to recover the stolen child. Fortunately, luck ran out on them when 2 kids were found in their possession, by the police in Issele-Uku, on Monday, 13th of November.
On interrogation, they confessed to have been stealing children. When they kidnap children, they transport their victims to Asaba, where a 70-year-old woman received the victims for onward movement to the East, for sales.
