The Plateau State police command said it intercepted two trucks carrying 145 children from Gombe, Bauchi and Jigawa states.
The public relations officer, Terna Tyopev, in a statement said the driver, conductor and all accomplices will be charged to court.
The statement said the children, who are all male, were being taken to places not known to the coordinators of the movement.
The PPRO added that the children, aged between four to eight years, were to be shared to Plateau, Kaduna and Nasarawa states.
Tyopev said the police were liaising with the Plateau chapter of Jama’atul Nasril Islam and other critical stakeholders, to establish contact with the two state governments for the return of the children to their parents.
Tyopev said :“This trend, if not checked, will cause embarrassment to Plateau, north central and the nation at large,”
