The suspects are one Miss Rejoice Raymond, 39 and Mrs Chidi Nwafor, 80. A viral video circulating in the state showed a huge outcry by members of the public, when men of the Anambra State police command raided the residence of the women. The video also showed policemen, rescuing three children who were locked up in different rooms in the flat, apparently keeping them for rituals. According to a woman in the video, the culprits who were arrested along Awka road, Onitsha were taken to the apartment at 3-3 estate, where the children were discovered. Police spokesperson in Anambra, CSP Haruna Mohammed who confirmed the arrest said the women arrested were two. He gave their names as; Mrs Chidi Felicia Nwafor, 80 years old and Rejoice Raymond, 39 years old. Sources told DAILY POST that the women operate a ministry along Awka road, Onitsha, and use children to make charms for businessmen and politicians. Haruna said police would be charging her for child abuse, deprivation of liberty and assault on the three children. Haruna said, “On February 19, at about 5:50 pm, following an intelligence report, police operatives attached to 3-3 Police Station Nkwelle Ezunaka arrested two suspects and rescued three minors. “Scene was visited by the DPO 3-3, CSP Abdu Bawa, where a gory sight of badly battered victims, one with a broken arm were found in the pool of their blood and whose parents were neither seen nor known. “Meanwhile, the children were rescued and rushed to the hospital for medical attention,” he stated.
