An Assistant Superintendent of Police simply identified as ASP Kulu, alongside her accomplice, one Elizabeth, has been arrested by the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Police Command for allegedly abducting five children, including a less than two-week-old-baby girl from Sokoto State. 

The children include three toddlers under the ages of two,  a five-year-old named Asmau Ya’u, and the previously mentioned week-old baby.

The 5-year-old was reportedly abducted while she was on her way to an Islamiyya school in Sokoto.

The women sparked suspicion while traveling from Sokoto to Abuja in an 18-seater bus, as fellow passengers observed that none of the women could breastfeed the crying infant.

 A co-traveler who gave his name as Abba Danbaba and Comrade Nura Mukhtar of Human Rights Network Nigeria told DaiilyTrust, “On that Saturday (April 27), as we were traveling, we noticed that the children were in a frenzy and couldn’t talk.

“So, as we alighted at Deidei, we queried them to prove if they were their biological children to which they answered in the affirmative. The ASP said she couldn’t breastfeed the toddler because she’s been battling breast disease. 

“We then alerted Deidei police division who took the suspects to Gwagwa division and on Monday (April 29), they were transferred to FCT command alongside the abducted children.”

Investigation revealed that ASP Kulu, reportedly serving with the Kubwa division, had applied for leave, which was not granted before her trip to Sokoto. 

Subsequent inquiries uncovered additional children in her custody at her Deidei apartment, and witnesses from Sokoto Motor Park testified to seeing her with numerous children in the previous weeks. 

When contacted, the FCT Police Public Relations Officer, SP Josephine Adeh, confirmed that investigations were ongoing.
