Operatives of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in Enugu State have rescued Goodluck Onwe, a 13-year-old.

Okadigbo Edwin, NSCDC Public Relations Officer, Anambra State Command, in a statement, said the Onwe was rescued while wandering the streets of Abakaliki and had since been reunited with his family in Anambra State.

He said, “The little boy was seen wandering the streets of Abakaliki before he was rescued on the 4th of February, 2024, at about 1300hrs by operatives of NSCDC Ebonyi State Command.

“Investigation reveals that the said boy stays with a relative in Abakaliki but ran away from home with the intent to return to his parents who reside at Peter Okonkwo Street Aguleri, Anambra East LGA, Anambra State.

“Subsequently, NSCDC Anambra State Command was contacted by Ebonyi State Command to trace the origin and parents of the Child.

“In response, the Command made a frantic effort to locate his parents for identification and collection. After a detailed verification process, the boy has been handed over to Mr Onwe Sabastine, his father.”
