|Hardship Forced Us To Sell Our Baby – Suspected Child Traffickers Confess by starz: 4:07 am On April 29, 2018|
Suspected child traffickers who were recently arrested have confessed to why they got involved in the criminal act.
A 35-year-old man identified as Nkemakolam Ugorji, and his wife, Happiness, have confessed that economic hardship made them to sell their two-day-old baby girl.
Ugorji and Happiness said they had been married for seven years and already had four, adding that they could not care for the fifth baby and therefore decided to give away the baby to foster parents.
Happiness said, “My husband and I decided to sell our baby because of hardship. We have four children and my husband is not working. When I was pregnant, there was no money for me to go for antenatal and feeding was even a problem for us. That was why we decided to sell our baby.”
On his own, Ugorji, who claimed to be an orphan, said since he relocated from Port Harcourt to his village, he had been jobless.
He added that he agreed with his wife to sell his baby to raise money for his family.
“It was my village people who informed the police that I sold my baby because I couldn’t give them a proper account of my baby when they discovered that my wife was not pregnant again.”
Their accomplice in the crime identified as Nma said the couple had approached her to help them adopt the baby to a foster parent who could take care of the baby.
The Commissioner of Police in the State, Mr. Anthony Ogbizi, has confirmed the incident.
