A Juvenile court sitting in Owerri on Thursday ordered that Nkiruka Kamalu, a mother of four, charged with alleged child trafficking, be remanded in a correctional facility, pending legal advice.

The police charged Kamalu with two counts of conspiracy and child trafficking.

Magistrate A.O. Odioyenma ordered that the case file be transferred to the office of Director of Public Prosecution (DPP).

She said though bail was at the discretion of the court, the matter before her was a serious offence.
