    This is what poverty can cause. That a mother would willingly sold her baby for a meagre amount of N80K, Chai…
    Suffice me to say, even some police dog puppies are more expensive than that.
    A human being for crying out loud!!!

    It seems that this degenerate business is thriving well, or why are we having so many reported cases within a 4-week period? I bet the ones that go unknown is even greater. This shows how despertately wicked the human heart is.

    In my humble thinking, this crime should carry the same weight of penalty as kidnapping. In fact, any person who could draw up a hell-given wicked plan to sell an innocent child is worse than a kidnapper.
