The parents, Ifeanyi, 35, and Emmaculata Elijah, 30 – are indigenes of Amakpu- Umuba, in the Isiala Ngwa North Local Government Area of Abia State. But they are residents of Irete, in the Owerri West LGA of Imo State.
After three weeks of investigation, the Monitoring Unit of the Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department of the Imo State Police Command has apprehened a couple for allegedly selling their daughter, Chinecherem, for N400,000, a few hours after delivery.
The innocent baby was denied love and parental care immediately she was given birth to. The parents conspired to take N400,000 instead of their daughter that was delivered at their residence.
The Commissioner of Police, who is upset with this act of wickedness and crime against humanity, has ordered that the wheels of justice and investigation be accelerated so that the matter would be charged to court.
