Woman arrested for attempting to sell her baby for N40k in Ebonyi


Despite her arrest, the woman insists she would sell the child to raise money to start selling drinks.


The police in Ebonyi State on Tuesday detained a woman believed to be a commercial sex worker for allegedly trying to sell her baby for N40,000.


The woman has been identified as Victoria Chukwube, 32.


The four-month-old boy was still breastfeeding.


The woman said she wanted to sell the child to raise money to start a business of selling drinks.


The police spokesperson in Ebonyi, Loveth Odah, while parading the suspect, said she was arrested following a tip off.


“So her name is Chukwube Victoria, she told us she is a commercial sex hawker and that she has this baby which she carrying.


“She said if she leaves here she would continue to look out for prospective buyers.


“But we tried to talk to her and to make her see the value of being a mother, but she refused.


“She even told us that if we allow her to go home with the baby she will throw the baby away and that she can’t tell who got her pregnant,” Ms Odah, a deputy superintendent of police, said.
