A middle-aged woman, Ekaette Obot, has been arrested by the Akwa Ibom State Police Command for allegedly selling her grand daughter’s newborn baby for N200,000.
According to Punch, Obot was arrested after a neighbour reported the incident to the police and upon investigation, it was discovered that the grandmother reportedly sold the baby born to her granddaughter, Blessing Okon.
Upon interrogation, Obot claimed that she took the step to sell the baby because the 18-year-old Okon got pregnant out of wedlock and there was no one to take care of her and the infant.
Confirming the arrest of the suspect, the state Commissioner of Police, Adeyemi Ogunjemilusi, said that Obot who is also pregnant told the police that as soon as she was delivered of the baby, she would also sell it.
“This is the mother to this lady. As soon as her daughter gave birth she sold the child for N200, 000. She is pregnant and she is saying that as soon as she puts to bed, she is going to sell her own baby also,” Ogunjemilusi told newsmen.
