“I took the five-year old child from Apa to Abuja without the consent of his parents because I wanted to see if I can get somebody to buy him. The father is my childhood friend and the mother is my sister,” he said.
Narrating further, the suspect who is father of three, said that when he couldn’t get a buyer, he returned the child the following day without pressure from any quarter only to be arrested later by the police.
He however, declined to answer any question as to why he opted to sell his friend’s child instead of his and what he needed the money for or why he voluntarily returned the minor to his parent.
An Assistant Superintendent, Moses Joel Yamu, who paraded the suspect, said that the case of abduction against Agbese was first reported at the Ado Police Division penultimate Wednesday by one Emmanuel Edeh of Apa-Agila community.
The Police spokesman, said that the complainant reported that the suspect, Agbese abducted his five year old son, David Emmanuel to Abuja without his consent.
He added that luck ran out of Agbese as the security operatives spread out their drag nets immediately and he was arrested while the child was recovered from his possession unhurt two days after and handed over to the police.
Agbese, according to the police, would soon be charged to court for the law of the land to take its full course.
