Police in Ebonyi state have rescued two siblings aged 5 and 10 who were abducted from their home in Abakaliki at gunpoint.
The children were with their mother who deals on fashion wears in the house when the hoodlums invaded the place and abduct the kids.
They had demanded for money from their father who is a lecturer oversea but the man appealed to them to release his wards as he doesn’t have money to pay them.
The Police Public Relations Officer in the State, DSP Loveth Odah disclosed this in Abakaliki while speaking to journalists.
She alleged that the kidnappers robbed the mother of the siblings of huge amount of money before taking her children away.
According to her, the suspected kidnapper later demanded N10m ransom but had to abandon the children in Afikpo South Local Government Area following pressure from police operatives.
The police PRO said the children had been reunited with their parents while efforts were being made to track down the abductors and their collaborators.
