Housewife Sells Neighbours Child For N250,000 In Delta State





A housewife who lives in Akwukwu-Igbo community near Asaba, Delta State, Eunice (surname withheld), has allegedly stolen her neighbour’s two-year-old  baby and sold her for N250,000.00.

Reports said that the woman, who is currently helping the police and cooling off her heels at the state’s police, CID, Asaba, was said to have arranged for the sale of the baby with a woman who was said to have been married for 18 years without a child in Lagos before the bubble burst.


It was reliably gathered that a trusted neighbour had last Wednesday appealed to Eunice to help look after the baby to enable her buy some food items in a neighbouring community’s market.

Eunice, however, put a call across to the said buyer (now at large).

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Celestina Kalu, who confirmed the arrest of the woman, disclosed that the suspect had disappeared after selling the baby.

DSP Kalu said that the police, acting on a tip-off and relying on neighbours who sighted the woman while the deal lasted, swung into action and arrested the woman in Ore Community where she was lodged in hotel.
