The rescue mission also led to the arrest of five suspects, including a Reverend Sister. Those apprehended include:Reverend Sister Pauline Alozie, Chizoba DJ, Glory Umuna, Mrs. Georgina Nonye Okoye and Philip Ibe.

These suspects were arrested at various locations including Amawbia and Nkpor in Anambra State, and Warri in Delta State.

They are currently in police custody and are expected to be charged in court soon.


The police command’s statement emphasized the importance of collaboration between law enforcement and the community, thanking all stakeholders who contributed to the successful rescue operations.
