One of the three siblings abducted by a commercial motorcycle rider in Amaoba Ime Oboro in the Ikwuano Local Government Area of Abia State has been rescued.

Recall that the rider stole the children on May 10, 2024, the rescued one was said to have been located and rescued by security agents in Anambra State.

The father of the children confirmed this to our reporter on Wednesday adding that, “We are still looking for the other two.”

The rescued child is six-year-old Master Divine Osinachi, who is the middle child.

A source said, “He was rescued on May 21, 2024 by security agencies in Ekwulobia in Anambra State. Further information will be provided on a need-to-know basis.”

Unconfirmed sources claimed that the rider had already given the children to a woman, who allegedly sold them to different people.

For a long time, Anambra State has become a destination point for child traffickers.

Before this rescue, our reporter gathered that community members had embarked on protest and prayer marches, marking different days since the theft of the children.

The first set were women, men, youth, and primary school pupils.

The women in their numbers came out on Wednesday May 15, 2024, and marched around the community.

A Facebook user, Uzodinma Philip, who shared videos and pictures of the women, wrote, “Our mothers are praying for the missing kids and for God to take control.”

Recall that the children – eight-year-old Gideon Osinachi, six-year-old Divine Osinachi, and four-year-old Israel Osinachi, were returning from school when they were taken.

Gideon is a primary two pupils, while Divine and Israel are both in Nursery 3 and 1, respectively.

The post shared by Philip has caused other members of the community who are also on Facebook to react.

One of them, Nwanneoma Winifred Nzenwa, wrote, “Not only our mothers but all Amaoba indigenes worldwide. God will brutally deal with that person so that others will take precautions. Their story will be a lesson to others.”

Another person, Adanne Shine, noted, “Our Lord Jesus Christ, please hear the voice of our mothers plus father, bring back our children from the hand of the kidnappers.”

One Dorisnne Osondu Eke also prayed, “No harm will come to those children; they will be brought back safe, and sound and the perpetrators will be exposed and brought to book in Jesus’s name.”
