July 23, 2016 – Picture: Mothers Arrested For Renting Out Their Babies To Street Beggars

A mother of four identified as Tawakalitu Aregbesola was arrested yesterday for renting out her 3-week-old baby boy to beggars who deliver between 1000 to 1500 to her daily.

40-year-old Aregbesola was one of the 5 women arrested by LASG officials yesterday.

Aregbesola, who was the only Yoruba woman among the suspects, interpreted for others, who spoke in Hausa and couldn’t explain why they ventured into the illegal business. She claimed that she and other women only release their babies around 5p.m. and get them back with money by 7p.m. daily.

But when asked if it was possible for the beggars to pay her N1,500 daily for using the baby for two hours, she kept mum.

The rescued babies are currently at a Rehab center in Ikorodu while Aregbesola and others are being detained at Alausa Police station.

  1. You see! You see what this heartless individuals are doing? All in the name of bad economy eh?. This women are just being greedy and heartless mothers. Many at times you will see them and ask why is this act of begging on the rise especially in lagos not knowing that many of them are deliberate. Let them face the consequence. Useless mothers.

  2. Nigerians have encouraged this innovative 419 without knowing it. As for me, I don’t give a full-bodied beggar anything no matter how they cry. If some handicap individuals are brave enough to engage in one or two economic activities, a “complete” man has no reason whatsoever to go begging. But some Nigerians think they are generous when they give, not knowing that they have been duped.

  3. How can u rent ur baby out like a piece of property, this women must be insane, they don’t even care how d children will be cared for while in d hands of those people using them.
    Its better they are taken away from dis lunatics.

  4. @D_HUNTER most of these women are irresponsible women who are married but single… single mother they claim. i pity them “able bodied men fit for the farm” (ambassadors of poverty)

  5. Things has gone bed that a so called mother rent out her child just for money fools irresponsible mothers
