The personnel of the State Security Service, SSS, on Sunday rescued two children from their abductors in Kebbi state.

SSS said they were stolen by their abductors on February 16, 2016.

They were, however, rescued and reunited with their parent on Sunday.

A woman whose name was simply given as Aghata and two other accomplices, Moses and Samson have been arrested in connection with the abduction of the children who are 3 and 4 yeara of age.

According to SSS, the 3 suspected abductors were arrested in Enugu, Anambra and Lagos states respectively.

While reuniting the children with their parents at the Government House in Birnin Kebbi, Governor Abubakar Atiku Bagudu said two of the suspects were arrested in connection with the abduction and sale of the two children that were earlier rescued by the SSS on the 10th of November this year in Zuru area of the state.

“The 4 year old boy, Silan-Laini James was stolen while playing in front of his grandfather’s home at Sha Da Wanka in Tudun Wada, Zuru local government area of Kebbi state,” the governor said.

Mr Bagudu said the children were rescued after months of painstaking investigations by the SSS on series of abductions that had taken place particularly in Zuru area of the state.

The mother of one of the rescued children, Mercy Daniel while being reunited with her son urged mothers to be more vigilant with their children.

She said, “Though what happened to me can happen to any other mother, I urged parents particularly mothers to be more vigilant with their children these days.”
