A 28-year-old man identified as Godspower Emeka, who is currently in police custody in Abia State, has confessed that he sold his niece for N150,000 to raise money for his extended family’s upkeep.Emeke, a motorcyclist and father of three, said feeding his children and other members of his family had become burdensome to him and his father.He told Southern City News that he reasoned that it would not be a bad idea if he sold one of the children in their family to raise money to feed others.

Emeka said,

“I’m a (commercial) motorcyclist from Umuokroukwu Omoba. The little girl is my niece and my elder sister is her mother. It started when one of my friends told me that he knew one barren old woman who wanted to buy a child.“I then said since we are many, why can’t l give out one of our children to raise money to take care of the family? I thought the idea would reduce the load of feeding in our family on my head because we are 11 in number.“I’m married with three children, while my sister has four children. But she is not aware that I wanted to sell her daughter. I’m begging everybody to forgive me; it was a temptation that came my way. I have not done this before”.

But Emeka’s accomplice in the crime; one Kelvin Ogbuigwu, said he (Emeka) contacted him to get a buyer of the three year-old girl.

He said,

“Emeka told me that he has a sister, who is his father’s bastard daughter. He said his father was late and they could longer take care of the girl. He asked me if I had contact of someone that would adopt the girl and I told him that I had a contact.
“I contacted one Mr. Kekere in Omuma, Rivers State. Later, I took him to meet the man last week Sunday with the girl. Unfortunately, the woman, who was supposed to come and pick the girl at the sum of N150,000 couldn’t come that day. Then in the night, the police operatives came and recovered the baby.”The Abia State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Adeleye Oyebade, confirmed the arrest of the suspect and the rescue of the girl.Oyebade explained that the command had intensified efforts towards arresting the suspected buyer of the girl, adding that suspects in police custody will be arraigned in court soon.
