How Lagos woman used N200 to lure, abduct 3 kids in Borno

A sexagenarian woman, Nsa Heneswa, has been arrested by the police in Maiduguri, Borno State, with two abducted almajiri boys and a two-year-old girl.

The Commissioner of Police (CP), Abdu Umar, revealed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

He said the suspect was arrested at the Borno Express Motor Park on August 4.

Umar said the suspect arrived Maiduguri on August 3, and went straight to the Monday Market where she saw vulnerable children, popularly known as “almajiri”, begging on the road.

He said, “The suspect called one of the children and offered him N200. She then asked him to accompany her so that she could buy him some clothes.

“She then went back to the town in search of another victim.”

He explained that the suspect got to the ‘Yan Nono at the Bulumkutu area where she abducted another child belonging to one Mrs Amina Ayuba, a fresh milk seller.

He said, “When she arrived the motor park, she requested for a vehicle going to Lagos, but members of the union told her it had already left.

“She then begged for a place to stay before the following day.

“Again, she went out and picked the third child.

“However, luck ran out on her when she decided to take one of the kids to a restaurant to get some food.”

He said that a commercial driver operating on the Abuja Line at the motor park became suspicious of the way the suspect was behaving and alerted the security and surveillance team at the park who arrested and handed her over to the police.

Speaking to NAN in police custody, the woman said, ”Honestly, this is the first time I am doing this. I had never done this before. A woman in Lagos introduced me to this.” (NAN)
