The Imo state police command in Nigeria has arrested and paraded a housewife identified as Chinasa Ukaonu, for selling her baby for N500k (that’s about GHC7,516 when converted to Ghanaian cedis) after delivery.
The plan to sell her baby was set in motion after she told her husband Promise Ukaonu, that she was going to stay with her brother for a while at Mbaitoli in the 8-month of her pregnancy.
However after sending over a message of losing the pregnancy shortly after, Chinasa turned up at a baby factory where two nurses, Esomonu Dorothy and Eke Catherine delivered her of the baby.
Suspecting foul play, Promise reported the incident to the police.
Upon being arrested, the mother named the two nurses who helped her out during delivery and also revealed she sold her baby for N500k (GHC7,516) to one Mrs. Chioma Amadi.
The State Police Commissioner, Rabiu Ladodo said the paraded suspects will be charged to court after investigation has been concluded.
He also confirmed that the baby has been recovered.
