July 27, 2013 – Mother Sold Her 3-Weeks Old Baby For N100,000 In Imo State “I Bought The Baby In Owerri” – Suspect

Imo State police officials are now investigating how a 27 year old housewife, Mrs Njideka Okorie eloped with six months pregnancy and went into hiding where she was later delivered of a baby girl which she sold to one Agatha Okoronkwo for N100,000.

Saturday Sun gathered that Njideka has been married to Samuel Okorie , for over 10 years. The marriage was already blessed with four children while they were expecting the fifth child, the wife eloped with six months pregnancy from their home in Orlu, Imo State.

The housewife also fled her matrimonial home with the other four children

in March and returned four months after, precisely on July 5, 2013, with the four kids, but without the pregnancy of their fifth child.

It was learnt that the inability of Njideka to explain what happened to their baby led the husband to lodge a complaint against her at the Orlu police station.

While confirming the development, the Imo State Commissioner of Police, Mr Mohammed Katsina told Saturday Sun that ,” I have to send my ‘Police Ambush Squad’ to arrest Njideka Okorie and she confessed that she delivered the baby on June 27, 2013 but that she sold it for N100,000 to one Agatha

Okoronkwo . She said the child is a female and was sold when she was three weeks old.”The police boss stated that the police detectives travelled to Isieka Ihiala in

Anambra State to arrest the suspect, Agatha Okoronkwo , a civil servant who allegedly bought the three-week old child.

The complainant, Samuel Okorie told Saturday Sun that,” I was shocked that before I came to the house, my wife has eloped with my four children and my six months old pregnancy she has for me.” He added that “suddenly, she appeared again after two months . She came with my four children . But I didn’t see the pregnancy again and there was no baby. I was not happy and reported the case to Orlu police station.”

Okorie explained that, “ It was when my wife was arrested by the police that she confessed to have sold a-three week old baby for N100,000 to a woman in Ihiala in Anambra State. Thank God that the police recovered the baby.”

“I didn’t quarrel or have any misunderstanding with her. We were living together in peace. I was surprised that my wife left the house suddenly “, he added. In her confessions on why she sold her baby, Njideka said “ It was the work of the devil. I have never had any misunderstanding with my husband . I just left suddenly and I went to deliver the baby and later sold it for N100,000. I delivered the baby and sold it after three weeks.

“I came back to my husband’s house and with his four children and he asked me about the pregnancy but I didn’t say anything. He later went to report the matter to the police and I was arrested. It was then that I confessed that I sold the child for N100,000. The police followed me to my father’s house and they recovered N78,000 out of the N100,000 I received from the sale of the child.”

In her own explanation, Agatha Okoronkwo stated that “ It was when she (Njideka) contacted me and I needed a child. I work at the Red Cross Organization. I bought the child for N100,000. I needed a baby and bought the three-week old baby from her in Owerri..”

The state police commissioner said his command had recovered the baby and handed her over to a rehabilitation home. He said the suspects will soon be charged to court after thorough investigation.

What a heartless mother!

After 9 months of pregnancy, all she could do is to sell her innocent baby girl.

God have mercy.

  1. I dont know why is now normal business in eastern nigeria to sale their own babys and slepp,cos of love of money, other people children are no more save too,no eastern will live in my house or my street,cos children are in danger. when they move to other parts, u see increase in kidnapping , robbers and fake drugs, what kind of people are this ibos i dont just understand, love money than anythings in this world.2015 let every zone have their own country like ussr and former yougoslavia,we close our broader from rest former nigeria, cos our own black sheep in our tribes is ok, we dont need more imported owns.

  2. That woman deserved to be purnished with atleast a shortterm imprisonment along with d buyer….what a wicked mother!

  3. there some couple seeking for child and they don,t see. Selling kids is a sin before God nd bear it in mind dat in d judgement will answer the question.

  4. what a wicked world we re living in. Thanks for ur slow in anger else, such woman should be cosumped by ur wrath of fire may ur save her soul.

  5. Throughout d time dat she left d house with her children and until the time she delivered her baby,where was d husband? Did he look for her and their children. Her action is bad but the husband stil has something to tell the world.

  6. Is a pity that such a thing happened and am not in support of such a terrible thing. But Mulikat for you to say all easterners are like that is bad but have you sat down to think or even ask lagos and other western states if they can survive without the ibos working and trading there. If Nigeria should disintegrate today the region that will die of starvation in the west because if you check properly Ibos and hausas are the sources of taxes and levies the west live on and yorubas are the laziest tribe we have in Naija. So please shut your rotten mouth you tribalist fool.

    • Nonso,u cant advice someone wth an insult.its not done dat way.de person will focus on de insult n dump de advice.please check urself.its true ibos will do anythn for money.its very true.at least dats wht statistics mke us knw.its also however true,dat not all ibos will do dat bcos ders an exception to evry rule.buh dat doesn mean u shd insult him to dat extent.its bad.
