The Kano State Government on Monday disclosed the discovery of seven more children, stolen from the state and transferred to Anambra and Enugu States .
Kano state commissioner for Information, Muhammad Garba told reporters on Monday, saying that Kano government has already identified their kids and that they will be reunited soon.
It would be recalled that police had in 2019 said that nine children were kidnapped in Kano in separate incidents and were allegedly renamed and sold off in Onitsha, a commercial city in Anambra State.
The official said pictures and video footage of the missing but found children were taken and disseminated, which prompted five parents to identify their children.
Mr Garba said the children would soon be reunited with their parents after scrutiny.
It was also informed that some of the parents, whose children were abducted earlier, formed a group to pressure the government with protest and consultation to expedite action towards securing the release of their children.
Mr Ibrahim Ismail, the leader of the group, expressed delight over the latest development leading to the discovery of seven more stolen children.
“We’re happy with the discovery, only two children among the seven found are yet to be identified by their parents, however, we are still searching for 113 children that are still missing”.
