A two-week-old baby was allegedly sold by his grandmother for a reported N1.3million.
This was confirmed by Police spokesperson, Antonia Amos, who stated that the grandmother claimed to have sold the baby because her daughter’s baby daddy had yet to pay her bride price.
It was learnt that Anthonia was arrested after the baby’s father, Christian Duru reported the case to the police.
The Commissioner of Police (CP), Joseph Mukan, said the suspect led the detectives to Ukanafun Local Government Area in Akwa-Ibom State where one Pauline Umoh was arrested.
She later led the officers to Mgbidi, Imo State where the buyer, Juliana Obianwa was arrested and the baby recovered.
According to the Commissioner of Police, the investigation is still ongoing to arrest the remaining suspects.
