Oct 30, 2015 – Shock As Mother Sells Her Newborn Baby For 20,000 Naira In Calabar Cross River State

Cross River State Police Command has arrested a young mother who sold her two-week old baby for 20,000 Nigerian Naira in Calabar.

In a news briefing in Calabar on Thursday, Calabar Police spokesman, John Eluu, said that on October 27, the police received information that one Miss Maria Ekanem who was delivered of a baby two weeks ago was negotiating the sale of her baby.

He said that Ekanem allegedly negotiated with one Mrs Sunday Abang, the matron of Sedatoe Maternity Clinic on No 2, Umon Street, Calabar South, for sale of the baby. The PPRO added that one Dr Okokon Offiong, who runs Evangel Clinic, was also contacted to sell the baby. He said: “Ekanem went to where she and the buyers had agreed to meet at Inyang by Fuller Street.

On arrival, she was given N20,000 as part payment for the transaction. “On receipt of the information, a team of police detective swung into action leading to the arrest of five suspects, and the recovery the baby boy and a white Toyota RAV4 Jeep with registration No. JP 493 ABC used during the operation.

Eluu, who said investigation was still ongoing, promised that the suspects would be charged to court as soon as investigations were concluded. He added: “We assure members of the public of the command’s resolve and preparedness to wage war against all forms of crimes and criminality mostly in these ember months. “We are warning all troublemakers that the command will not spare them in her effort to weed criminal elements out of the state.”

However, Ekanem said she had no intention of selling her baby. She said she wanted to give out the child for proper care since she could not afford to take care of the child.

She added: “I have no intention of selling my child.

I don’t have money to take care of the child that is why I wanted to give him out to someone to help me take good care of him. I am not working, so I don’t have money to take care of him and even feed myself.

    It was a conspiracy move. However, the police should not leave out any of the culprits involved, but make sure that all of them are interrogated for the crime committed.

    Don’t condemn the mother. It is pathetic that Nigeria’s situation has gotten so bad that even babies are being sold for money to survive. Would you rather she kill that innocent baby than give him away? You don’t feed babies on free air, neither can a baby go hungry nor understand that money is needed to buy food. Why can’t those who have stolen sooo much money from Nigeria set up Charitable shelters where poor mothers with babies and young children can stay and eat decent meals, if only for the sake of those children? They can waste money on lavish parties and expensive cars, but watch babies and children starve to death. Diaris God o

    One point everybody is missing is this, this girl did not get herself pregnant. Who ever got her pregnant must share in the blame as well. Whatever punishment the girl receives must be meted out to the man as well.
