It was gathered the woman, Chioma Fidelis, a native of Ehime Mbano L.G confessed to the police that she got married out of wedlock and sold the baby because she could not afford to feed him since he was already suffering from kwashiorkor and she had no choice but to accept.
Also a female accomplice, by name Chidimma Unakalamba, who was paraded with Fidelis confessed to selling the baby boy to a couple, Mr and Mrs Jonas Anyawu, who allegedly wanted a male child for the sum of N600,000.
Though the baby has been recovered from the couple, a mild drama ensued between Fidelis and Unakalamba when the couple insisted that they paid N700,000 for the child.
Unakalamba then admitted that she deducted N137,000 she spent on the child’s medical bills, gave the mother N200,000 and pocketed the remaining.
