The State Commissioner of Police, Chris Olakpe, while parading the suspects before newsmen in Jos Wednesday, said “the trafficked baby girl, Chiamaka Obinna was recovered a week ago, July 24, at Awka, Anambra State, through intelligence efforts of detectives from the ‘A’ Division of the Nigeria Police, Jos.”

Olakpe explained further that the baby’s grandmother, who had custody of her, sold her to the first buyer five days earlier, July 19, after sending the people around her on errands.
