The police have detained the father and mother of a one-month-old infant for allegedly selling their child to another woman for N50,000.

The couple was apprehended on Thursday in the Ilara neighborhood of Ode Remo, in Ogun State’s Remo North Local Government Area.

Onyebuchi Eze and his wife, Oluchi Eze, were apprehended after officers at Ode Remo divisional headquarters received information that the couple, who live at Ayegbami street in Ilara Remo, had “willingly sold their one-month-old baby to a woman” now at large, according to the Ogun police spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi.

As a result, CSP Olayemi Fagbohun, the DPO of Ode Remo, was alleged to have dispatched his detectives to the location and had the suspects apprehended.

During questioning, Oyeyemi revealed that the suspects admitted that on December 14, “one Mrs Ruth Obajimi sent the yet-to-be-identified customer to them.”

“They stated further that the woman told them that she is from the human rights office and that she will help them to foster their child.

“The woman then gave them the sum of N50,000 and they handed over the baby to her despite not knowing her from Adam,” the police image maker said, adding that efforts are being geared towards apprehending the said woman to recover the baby.

Meanwhile, the State Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, had directed that the couple be immediately transferred to the anti-human trafficking and child labour unit of the state CIID for further investigation.

Bankole also ordered a massive manhunt for the buyer of the baby.
