In Kaduna: Govt unites 140 victims with families

The Commissioner for Human Services and Social Development in the state, Hafsat Baba, said of the figure, 140 have been re-united with their families.

Baba who gave the update on the incident on Sunday, said that the remaining victims including 77 children and 113 adults were taken to a secured facility at the Mando Hajj Camp in the state capital.

She noted that the motive is for proper profiling before uniting them with  their families upon proper identification.

“They were rescued and brought to Ranchers Bees Stadium and then they stayed there overnight. We provided food for them.

“On Friday, they were relocated to this facility, the Hajj Camp. And that was when we did the head count to find out and separate the children from the adults. Even though some of them ran away because of the freedom they got, we were able to 190 on ground.

“77 of them are children, the youngest being the age of six. There are some that are 7, 8, 9 and 10. We also have adults as old as 30 and even up to 50. We have 113 adults as at that time (Friday),” she said.
