Police Arrest Couple For Selling Their Baby For N50,000 In Ogun by Insidenaija: 1:56pm On Dec 19, 2021
Operatives of the Ogun State Police Command have arrested the father and mother of a one-month-old baby for selling the baby to another woman for N50,000, Newspremises has gathered.

The couple was arrested on Thursday at Ilara area of Ode Remo, in Remo North Local Government Area of Ogun State.

Abimbola Oyeyemi, the state police command spokesperson confirmed the development to Journalists on Sunday, December 19, 2021.

According to him, Onyebuchi Eze and his wife, Oluchi Eze were arrested apprehended following information received by officers at Ode Remo divisional headquarters, that the couple, who live at Ayegbami street, Ilara Remo, had “willingly sold their one-month-old baby to a woman” now at large.

Consequently, the DPO of Ode Remo, CSP Olayemi Fagbohun, was said to have detailed his detectives to the area and got the suspects arrested.

On interrogation, Oyeyemi revealed that the suspects confessed that “one Mrs Ruth Obajimi directed the yet-to-be-identified buyer to them” on December 14.

“They stated further that the woman told them that she is from the human rights office and that she will help them to foster their child.

“The woman then gave them the sum of N50,000 and they handed over the baby to her despite not knowing her from Adam,” the police image maker said, adding that efforts are being geared towards apprehending the said woman to recover the baby.

Meanwhile, the State Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, had directed that the couple be immediately transferred to the anti-human trafficking and child labour unit of the state CIID for further investigation.

Bankole also ordered a massive manhunt for the buyer of the baby.

I'm surprised a woman that carried a baby in her womb for 9 months will willingly agree with her useless husband to sell her child for #50,000 or even any amount. #50k that's not even up to $100. And, a more useless woman will agree to buy another person's child. Why do people even buy kids these days? If you need a child or you have a child to give up for adoption, then you can simply go to the appropriate and government licensed adoption agencies. How hard is that? Only people with evil intentions will cut corners to buy kids.
The woman then gave them the sum of N50,000 and they handed over the baby to her despite not knowing her from Adam
Lies! They know the buyer. No woman, especially an African woman, will hand over her child like that, even if she hates the child or she's poor to the core.

Why not arrest Buhari who has made Nigerians poor?

Concerning the matter of selling babies, if sold to another couple, there's nothing wrong there. However, if the baby was sold to trafickers or ritualists, that's when it's a crime. If the people could provide for themselves and the baby, they wouldn't have sold it at that price. The cost of caring for a baby right now is incredibly high as anything baby is super expensive. So, selling it to someone who can do a better job is fine by me. The baby deserve to live. 50k is a very big money for those couple. This is to tell you their level of poverty. They need help.
