“Operatives of the CP Monitoring Unit on July 8 based on the revelation of two suspects earlier arrested in a case of child trafficking, extended the investigation to Omudiaga, Emohua Local Government Area (LGA) of Rivers and Ogbaku in Mbaitoli LGA of Imo State where they arrested the duo of Ndubuisi Egbueri ‘M, and Ndubuisi Wosa ‘M,’ at Omudiaga, and one Chioma Anele ‘F at Ogbaku.

“Both Ndubuisi Egbueri and Ndubuisi Wosa confessed to receiving one of the baby, which they later handed over to Hon. Regina Aki ‘F at Rukpokwu in Port Harcourt.
