Woman gets a man to impregnate her sister, sells the unborn child for ₦100k

According to Punchng, the police in Lagos State have launched a manhunt for Amaka Ogua, for allegedly selling the unborn child of her younger sister, Nkechi, for N100,000, at Mile 2, and had already collected N50,000 in advance. Amaka is accused of running a baby factory.

A balance of N50,000 was agreed to be paid when 31-year-old Nkechi was delivered of the baby. The bubble burst on Friday, June 24, when the police got a tip-off from an NGO, Child Protection Network, CPN, and Nkechi was rescued from the apartment on the same day.

A CPN member, Toyin Oklagogo, said: “Nkechi was impregnated by a man brought home by her sister. Nkechi had a mental challenge some years back. She said at the police station that although she had memory loss, she could remember that her sister brought a man to impregnate her in the house.

She added that she was not in support of the sale of her baby, but her sister had collected money from a man. Nkechi also told us that she gave birth to a baby two years ago, but her sister had taken the child to an unknown person. So, the police are investigating child trafficking as well.

The police invited Amaka’s husband, but he declined, saying the police were meddling in a family affair.” Punchng gathered that the matter had also been reported at the Lagos State Ministry of Women Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, Ikeja, which took custody of Nkechi.

The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, confirmed the incident, adding that Nkechi had been rescued. She said, “The sister of the pregnant woman wanted to take advantage of her sibling’s mental condition to sell her baby when born.”
