According to her, “When I saw them, I knew that they must know about the whereabouts of my daughter who did not pass the night in my house.

The PPRO, however, noted that the police were on the trail of the Alhaji, adding that the suspects were arrested by detectives attached to ‘A’ Division Police Station, Warri area of the state.
