Rumpus Over Missing Child, As Police Arrest Grandmother


Men of the Criminal Investigating Department (CID) of the State Police Command have arrested the gandmother of a missing child in Asaba, Delta State,while they intensify search for the missing child.

Reports said that residents of a large piece of land around Bosac Area in Asaba on which makeshift houses often called Bacha are built, have been thrown into confusion following the mysterious disappearance of the three- year old girl, identified as Gift.
While the disappearance of the child has raised serious questions, some residents of the area who spoke to our correspondent and did not want their names in print, are asking if the disappearance of the child is a case of abduction or child trafficking.
But the incident, it was reliably gathered, happened last Sunday, when the mother of the missing child (name removed) who lives in one of the Bachas with her mother, was few weeks before the incident, advised by a female neighbour to sell the child and use the proceeds to improve herself since they have been living poor and could hardly feed.
Two weeks after the advice, our informed sources, said the grandmother of the child was on her way to the village market while the mother of the child and the adviser neighbour were preparing to go to Church.
