Confession Of Nursing Mother Who Sold Baby Daughter To Orphanage For N200K To Raise Money For Husband’s Business

A mother who sold her baby daughter to raise money for her husband’s business has confessed.

23-year-old Miracle Johnson sold her baby identified as Greatness Johnson, to an orphanage in Onitsha, Anambra State, for N200,000. The Commissioner of Police, Mr Johnson Kokumo, who confirmed the incident, described it as a serious offence.

It was learnt that the nursing mother, who hails from Agenebode, in the Etsako East Local Government Area of the state, was paid in cash.

She said she was persuaded by one Mama Joy, said to be at large, to sell the infant and give the money to her husband to start a business.

Her confession:

“My baby was born on July 2. I sold her due to frustration. My husband was just struggling (to provide for us).

“My friend (Mama Joy) said that since my husband was not taking care of me, if I did it (sold the baby), I could give the money to my husband to start a business or buy a motorcycle.

“Two weeks later, she came back. I did not know what happened to me. So, I carried a bag, picked some things and left.

“I sold her to an orphanage in Onitsha. The orphanage bought the child for N200,000. I just bought only a phone; I did not want to buy it, but she (Mama Joy) forced me to do so,”

Miracle stated that she regretted her action and later confessed to her pastor.

She said;

“I told my pastor what I did and that it was a mistake for which I would never forgive myself. So, my husband and I went to a police station to report. I know what I did was not good. I pray that my child will forgive me.”

Her husband, Johnson Omovuokpor, expressed anger that his wife went ahead with her plan, in spite of his disapproval.

He said;

“When she told me about her plan, I told her to forget about it and exercise patience.

“On that day, I took my motorcycle out for repairs. When I went back home to get some money, I saw my first daughter with my neighbour.

“When I asked about my wife’s whereabouts, I was told that she went out with a bag, saying that she was going to buy something. So, I remembered what she said she wanted to do with the baby.

“When she called me later in the afternoon to tell me that she had sold the baby, I cursed her and ended the call. I became confused afterwards and could not do anything for the rest of that day.”

Edo state Commissioner said the baby would be rescued while the suspect would be charged to court.

    Mama joy probably got 800k from the buyer as a settlement for job well done let me not call it Orphanage home because a legit orphanage home won’t buy babies they accept kids under some circumstance to help them out..

    that is not even the point, orphanage buying a child? that sounds ridiculous!!!, it’s well, a mother selling her child is despicable.

    Some women have been known to exhibit some strange behaviours after childbirth. This young woman should be examined by experts to ascertain if she is mentally sound. Poverty and stress of childbirth could have adversely affected her thought process and that possibility should be ruled out before the issue of punishment is considered please.
