0
The Cross River State Police Command on Wednesday reunited
an 11-year-old girl, Felicia Destiny, who was abducted five years ago, with her
parents. Destiny was abducted in January 2011 at Okpekpe in the Etsako East
Local Government Area of Edo State by a herbalist, Emmanuel Akpan-Okon.
Punch Metro had reported on November 26, 2015, that
Akpan-Okon also abducted one Esther Wisdom (11) from Onitsha in Anambra State
and turned the kids into s3x slaves. The kids were rescued on November 16,
2015, in Akamkpa, Akamkpa Local Government Area of Cross River State.
While handing over one of the rescued victims (Destiny) to
her mother, Mrs. Felicia Pius, at the command headquarters in Calabar, the
state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. John Eluu, said both victims were
rescued in the house of Akpan-Okon.

He said, “On November 16, 2015, a team of detectives
attached to the Akamkpa Police Division, acting on a tip-off, arrested a
herbalist, one Emmanuel Akpan-Okon, who specialised in removing bullets from
firearms victims.
“Investigation revealed that the herbalist is also known for
preparing charms for armed robbers and other miscreants in the area.
“His house and premises were searched and two juveniles,
Felicia Destiny (11) and Esther Augustine (11), both females, were rescued.
Both victims were abducted five years ago from their homes and parents.”
He said the suspect had confessed to the crime, adding that
he had fed the police with details on how the parents of the girls could be
contacted.
“Investigation is still ongoing. The suspect will be
arraigned as soon as investigation is completed. We will ensure that the
suspect faces the wrath of the law,” Eluu said.
The PPRO said that the police would also ensure that
Augustine was re-united with her family. He appealed to members of the public
with relevant information on the whereabouts of the parents of Esther to
provide it. He also advised parents to be cautious about the movement of their
children, saying juveniles could easily be lured by hoodlums if not properly
monitored.
Mother of Destiny, Felicia, who received her daughter with
tears of joy, commended the police for rescuing her daughter from the hands of her
captor five years after.

“I never believed I will see my daughter again. I almost
died when she was kidnapped in 2011. I am very happy to see her again. I thank
the Cross River Police Command for rescuing my daughter from the hands of her
captor,” she said.
