A student of the Federal Polytechnic Nekede, Vivian Iwuji, and her boyfriend, Obinna Ugochukwu, sold their new-born baby for the sum of N620,000 to a ready buyer. They however ran out of luck when Vivian’s father, Mr Patrick Iwuji, was not given a satisfactory explanation of what had happened to the child. He eventually reported the case and the Anti-Human Trafficking Unit of the Imo State Police Command swung into action and arrested the buyer of the baby, one Ehegalara Edwin, and the baby was rescued. Here’s what Vivian’s father said:
“She told us that she was going to the hospital to deliver and when we visited her, we asked her about the baby. She told us that the baby was dead. I didn’t believe her and there was no trace that my daughter’s baby was dead. I had to report to the police. Later the case was transferred to the Anti-Human Trafficking Unit for investigation. It was there that my own daughter with her boyfriend confessed that they sold the baby boy in the sum of N620, 000 to one Ehegalara Edwin”.
