The Command’s spokesperson, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, in a statement said the suspect was arrested following the report lodged at Agabra divisional headquarter by the suspect’s wife, Bright Essien.

Bright reported that sometime in October 2021, her husband, Kingsley, informed her that he had secured a job for her in Bamako Mali and that he has assisted many people to that country for greener pastures before.

She explained further that being her husband, she didn’t suspect any foul play until she got to Mali only to discover that she has been sold to a human trafficker cartel headed by a woman at the rate of N1.4 million.

While in Mali, she was forced into prostitution, but later found her way back to Nigeria Embassy in Bamako where she was assisted back to Nigeria.

On getting to Nigeria, she discovered that her two years old son in the care of her husband is nowhere to be found.

“Upon the report, the DPO, Agbara division, SP Abiodun Salau, detailed detectives to go after the suspect, and he was eventually arrested.

The suspect confessed to the commission of the crime and also confessed that he sold the two-year-old son to somebody at the rate of N600,000.

The police spokesman, however, said the state Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, had ordered that the buyer of the son must be traced and arrested.
