Police intercepts trucks carrying 145 kids in Jos

Plateau State Police Command on Monday announced that it had intercepted two trucks conveying 145 children from Bauchi and Jigawa States.

According to a statement by the public relations officer of the state, Terna Tyopev, the children, aged between four and eight years, “were to be shared to Plateau, Kaduna and Nasarawa States.
“Our investigation has revealed that these children, who are all male, were to be taken to places that even coordinators of the movement did not even know.”“This trend, if not checked, will cause embarrassment to Plateau State, North-central states and the nation at large,” he added.
 He disclosed that the police were liaising with the Plateau chapter of Jama’atu Nasril Islam and other critical stakeholders, to establish contact with Bauchi and Jigawa governments for the return of the children to their parents
The spokesman urged the public to report the presence of strange children in their environment.

He appealed to members of the public to continue to cooperate with the force to rid the society of such negative acts.
