HAPSTA arrests 'parents' who abandoned their children

HAPSTA/CRARN crack/investigation team and the Police, this morning at around 4:00am arrest Mr Victor Ononganwi in Orukim village in Mbo LGA who abandoned his two children in Eket. The man and wife whom the children identify as their parents were arrested and detained behind the counter.  During cross-examination it was discovered that the two persons were not their "biological parents" rather there were their aunt and her husband who took care of them sometime ago but later turned to stigmatized and abandoned them. Police is planning a re-visit again this afternoon. They are still under police investigation.
