The CRARN rescue team got a tip-off about four children who were roaming the streets and frequently had a rough encounter with some hooligans who reportedly manhandled them.

But on arriving to rescue them, we discovered they were 22 in number but five were nowhere to be found including 4 females. The children were found in a very nauseating and deplorable condition which is beneath human habitation. The children said they were all stigmatized as witches and wizards and forced to leave their home through persistent torture and raining of verbal abuses. Majority of them indicated strong interest in returning to school while a few of them said they wanted to learn trade. All the children are of Akwa Ibom origin but from different local government areas. They are also in need of new beddings and mattresses, books, and education materials.
