Anambra mother sells unborn baby for N100,000

05 August 2016, 08:27

Abuja - Officials from the Anambra State Police Command have paraded a 29-year old woman along with two accomplices after it was alleged that they had been involved in a child trafficking plot.

According to a Punch report, Chidinma Okorie claimed to have sold two children since becoming involved in the child trafficking trade and is currently pregnant with a child that she has already promised to sell to an evangelist at a cost of N100,000.

“I sold the two children at N50,000 each. I, myself, am pregnant now and the evangelist said when I’m delivered of my baby, she would buy it for N100,000.

“I have five children; but I’m not married. I have not sold any of my children; but I have sold two children, starting with the child of a pastor that I first stole. I’m pregnant and I have agreed to sell my baby to the evangelist for N100,000 when I give birth,” Okorie stated.

The woman's accomplices, identified as Emmanuel Tobechukwu and Cosmos Ugorji, are believed to be doctors who have helped her in her trade previously, The Nation reports.

Ugorji, however, has insisted that he has never before laid eyes upon Okorie.

Okorie was allegedly apprehended by officials after it was found that she had abducted a 4-year-old child from the Umuoji village, leading to residents raising the alarm and getting her swiftly arrested.

Nkeiru Nwode, Police PR Officer, has since confirmed the arrest, also confirming that Okorie had in fact abducted a child belonging to a pastor in the area.
