“Abidemi cautioned those engaged or thinking of engaging in such business to have a rethink because the arm of the law would catch up with them.

“He also advised parents not to give out their children for such businesses and urged the public to report any suspicious move by anybody to the command or any law enforcement agencies for appropriate action.

“The children are supposed to be in school during this period.

“The suspects are giving us useful information and we will hand them over to the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons for further investigation,” the statement said.
