Four children belonging to three different parents have been stolen in Umuahia by two new female tenants.

The kids named Chioma, 6, Ogbonne, 6, Miracle, 5, and Joy, 3, were taken away to an unknown destination by two unidentified tenants who moved into the compound at Uwalaka Street by Ossah Road in Umuahia, capital of Abia State.

This is happening barely two weeks after four children of the same parents were taken away to an unknown destination by a tricycle driver, in Umuahia, while on their way to school.

It was gathered that the alleged abductors in the latest case disguised as genuine tenants who rented and paid for a room in the building where the families lived. After moving in, they immediately became friendly with the families, giving food and gifts to the children, and also playing around with them while perfecting their evil plans.

One of the grieving mothers, Mrs Ngozi Kingsley, stormed a radio station in Umuahia to call for help, telling the public about her only daughter, Chioma, who was taken away.

Narrating her ordeal, while crying, she said: “I went to the market as usual and left my children with my sister, who visited with her two children. We had no water in the compound due to a lack of power supply, so my sister went to fetch water and took my son with her.

“When she returned, she discovered that my daughter Chioma, her two daughters, Ogbonne, and Joy, as well as my neighbour’s child, Miracle, were missing and the new tenants were nowhere to be found.”

Mrs Ifeanyi Uduma Ibe from Okoni Ohafia whose two children were stolen by the new tenants, said the alleged abductors were cooking and serving her children food and giving them other gifts from the day they packed into the compound.

According to her, the suspects became overly friendly with children in the compound, while parents were unaware of the plan to steal their children.

Mrs Ibe, who said her daughter, Joy, can be identified by a birthmark on her knee, avowed that the case has been reported to the Police.

However, the Abia State Police Command has yet to confirm the latest incidence of missing children.

When contacted, the police spokesperson, ASP Maureen Chinaka, promised to respond in due time.
