While the suspect was being paraded at the Police Command. She denied torturing the children, stating that she caught the boys fornicating with the girl.
” The girl is holding their p*nis, saying it’s sweet. I’m not the one that beat them.
” Two days I observed it, I called Sabina to complain to her of what the children are doing, but she said she’ s not producing children. I called her more than three times before I finally went to her office. “
When she was asked how she got the money to adopt the children
She replied, ” I supply clothes to Area Command, CPS at Okpoko, NEPA office, Magistrate, and high courts since the 90s. I travel to Cotonou to bring goods for over 20years.
” Later, I joined the Okada business before joining the Keke business which I’ m currently into. Besides, I’m also a pastor. What is N3m to me? I think I’m here with respect to the children, not for my business to be investigated.
” The mortar and pistol are what I use to pound yam. The mirror is for my dressing. Don’t you see I’m still a young woman? “
The Commissioner for Women and Children Affairs, Lady Mrs. Ndidi Mezue has clarified that Sabina the suspect claimed to have adopted the children from was not a staff of the ministry and that all the documents presented by the suspects were fake.

She, however, appreciated the effort of the police ensuring that the ministry would not relent in taking care of the kids.
” I can assure you that ever since we assumed office till date, we have a clean slate on issues relating to child abduction.
” The first thing I did on assumption of office was to reshuffle officers in the child department because of what we’re witnessing today.
” I personally paid a visit to a total of 47 facilities where children are taking care of. I closed down 3 due to the same issue of child trafficking.
” The suspect on the run is not a staff of my ministry. She is a staff of the local government social welfare department at Awka South Local government before being transferred to Ihiala.
” Let me state categorically that Sabina Izuora is not and can never be a staff of the ministry under my watch. “
” The Ministry will not relent in taking care of the kids while the investigation continued. ” She said.
