Men of the Area M Police Command, Idimu, have arrested a woman who allegedly sold her four children in Lagos State. The woman sold four out of her five children to different buyers without the knowledge of her husband.
A petition by her husband to the Area Command, ACP Austine Akika, led to the arrest of woman simply identified as Vicky. The Police revealed that the suspect was selling the children one after the other and successfully sold four, leaving out only one.
The police said Vicky had lied to her husband that she took the kids to their relation until the husband later discovered she had sold them.
Her strange commercial activity was exposed after she sold the last child for N400,000 and her husband was tipped by a neighbour. The husband reported to the police and she was arrested and detained at the command’s cell.
She has already confessed to the police while efforts are on to rescue the children and arrest the buyers.
It was reported that the woman was able to carry out the illegal sales without her husband’s knowledge because the husband, who rented an apartment in Idimu area of Alimosho LGA, works outside Lagos.
