“While taking the children  to Enugu state to be sold, one of the children, named David Nwokeforo was rescued.

Speaking to Vanguard, Onuka said: “Let me tell you the truth, this is the second time I am doing this business of kidnapping. The first time, I did not benefit anything.   It was my friend who took the money and ran way. He ran away with N800,000.  I did not get anything.

“It was during my second  business that I was arrested by the police and I was expecting to get N800,000 but again, I did not get the money.”
