CONFESSION OF A MOTHER:

I SOLD MY DAY  OLD BABY FOR N500,000

The operatives of the Imo State Police Command have arrested a woman, Chinasa Ukaonu, for selling her day-old baby for N500,000.

Also arrested were two nurses, Dorothy Esomonu and Catherine Eke who assisted the woman to trade her child.

The police spokesperson in the state, Orlando Ikeokwu, told our correspondent that the buyer, Chioma Amadi, had been nabbed by the police.

The police spokesperson said that the arrest of the suspects assisted the police in rescuing the sold child.

Ikeokwu, who described the act as absurd and irritating, disclosed that the state commissioner of police, Rabiu Ladodo, had instructed the investigating team to prosecute the suspects at the conclusion of the investigation.

The police spokesperson said, “On August 1, 2019, the operatives of the Command acting on reasonable information arrested Chinasa Ukaonu, Chioma Amadi, Esomonu Dorothy, and Catherine Eke, all females.”

“Upon investigation, the husband, one Promise Ukaonu, discovered that his wife was not where she claimed she was going to stay.”

“However, a month later, he received a call that his wife had a stillborn. When he demanded to see the remains of the child, the wife told him that she wrapped it in a nylon bag and disposed of it.”

The police spokesperson continued, “Not satisfied with the story, he reported the matter at the Police which led to the arrest of  Chinasa Ukaonu, who then confessed of having sold the child to one Chioma Amadi for the sum of N500,000 with the help of the two nurses, Dorothy Esomonu, and Catherine Eke, who assisted her through the childbirth.”
“Through powerful investigation, the sold child was recovered and an investigation is at an advanced stage.”
