Police detectives in Zamfara state have arrested a Nigerien woman identified as Aisha Ibrahim, who allegedly tried to sell her co-wife’s two-year-old boy in Gusau, the state capital.

According to the state police commissioner, Mr Ayuba N Elkanah, the detectives acted on intelligence before tracking down the suspect at Tullukawa area of Gusau metropolis.

The suspect, who hail from Danyade Kaya village in Maradi, Niger Republic, was arrested with her co-wife’s child whom she claimed she stole in retaliation to the theft and sale of her son by her co-wife.

She further confessed that the reason for the theft was to sell the child and raise money for her day-to-day needs.

In another development, the police commissioner said military operatives deployed along Dansadau road in Maru LGA intercepted and rescued 17 victims, who were abducted on December 14, 2021, in Wamba Village of Mariga LGA of Niger State.

The rescued victims were handed over to the Command by the Brigade Commander 1 Brigade Nigerian Army, Gusau where they were checked medically, debriefed by the Police and handed over to the Commissioner of Police Niger State Command, who would reunite the victims with their families.

“Our attention has not been diverted to fighting banditry in the bush as to ignore other conventional crimes within cities and towns,” Mr Elkanah said.
