March 21, 2016 – Picture: Teenage Mother From Akure Forced To Sell Her Baby For 30 Thousand Naira In Onitsha Anambra, Child Trafficker & Childless Couple Arrested

A pregnant teenager who was lured from her base in Akure Ondo State by a child trafficker has been rescued.

17-year-old Tessy Obianua left her father’s home with pregnancy in January 2014. She came back 9 months later with no pregnancy and her baby.

Her father reported her to the police and during investigation, it was discovered the lady had sold her baby girl to a couple in Onitsha. She got N30,000 and some clothes as proceeds from the sale of the baby.

One Chibuzor Okoye, a notorious child trafficker allegedly took Tessy to live with a childless couple (Mr & Mrs Sunday Kalu) in Onitsha where she was nurtured until she delivered her baby.

Tessy confessed to the police that she was later given N30,000 and clothing after which she departed Onitsha to her father’s house in Akure.

“Through investigation to Onisha, the police arrested Okoye at No. 3, Tonny Olisa Street, Awada in Onitsha, who specialised in child trafficking. “It was Okoye, who sold the said baby girl to the couple at No. 8, Uzogwu Street, Onitsha for N500,000.

“She claimed to have given Jude (Azuka) N200,000 out of which Jude claimed to have bought clothes and shoes for Tessy and also gave her N30,000. “Mrs. Okoye thereafter forced Tessy to sign an undertaking that she would never come back for the baby.”

    She is a baby herself, I see no point in her selling that angel for 30,000

    So terrible. Where was her father when she left home with pregnancy? Nigerian fathers are another problem children face at home. Parents are expected to care for their children and train them responsibly and not abandoning their children when mistake like this one is done. I hope the suspects are made to pay dearly.

    @Maryf, some parents are very much aware of what their female children do. I know a lady in my place that gets pregnant and disappears only to reappear some nine months later with nothing. It is whispered that she uses the proceeds to sustain her poor father. Her mother, they say, became mad one fateful day and ran out of their house. So this is how this girl sustains her father and herself.

    Hummm… Sounds 4ny n pitiable at d same tym. A meagre N30K for a human child? Even common Gionee M5 handset is N45K hw much more for a human baby?

    Only God knws whr dat child wld hv bn tkn 2, who she wll eventually grow up wt dats if they did nt use her 4 ritual. Tnk God they were caught.

    Wat abt so many similar cases lk diz going on in the con3 unknown 2 any.

    May God continue 2 expose any shady dealings involving human traficking n any YINUSA-gate in 9ja.

    I need 2…

    Child/ren traffickers in Nigeria should be given life in prison or death sentences. This story is too egregious.

    Well it’s all the fault of the girl’s father, if he has taken his responsibility well enough the girl wouldn’t have left home
