POLICE ARRESTS FAKE BLIND BEGGARS IN AWKA
Police in Anambra State have arrested some ladies, who feigned blindness and used rented kids to beg for alms.
They were arrested by the task force team of Anambra State Ministry of Women Affairs, Social welfare and Children Development.
One of the suspects revealed that one Edith, who hails from Ebonyi State and is currently at large, brings the kids to them every morning for them to rent at N1,000 per day.
During interrogation, the Commissioner in-charge of the Ministry was able to discover that the kids do not even know where their real parents are. It is being speculated that they are victims of kidnapping or trafficking.
It was also discovered that the group of fake beggars camp at Army Barracks, Onitsha, and none of them are from Anambra State.
Most of them are from Ebonyi, Abia, Kogi and Imo States
