Further interactions with neighbours in the community, revealed that an earlier attempt by the Police to rescue the children proved futile as the man and children cried uncontrollably to be left alone for fear of being killed as the spirit has prophesied.
Reliable information picked from the Atibie Central Police Station indicates the case has been reported to the police but much can’t be done because it had to do with Spiritual Matters. Efforts are however being made to rescue the spiritual prisoners.
