Woman Sells Unborn Baby for N100,000




The Anambra State Police Command on Thursday paraded
a 29-year old woman from Ebonyi state, Chidimma Favour
Okorie, and two medical doctor accomplices for child
trafficking.
The doctors were Emmanuel Tobechukwu and Cosmos
Ugorji.
Chidimma said she had sold two children since she was
introduced into the “business” by a woman she identified
as an evangelist.
She said, “I sold the two children at N50, 000 each. I’m
pregnant and the madam said when I deliver my baby she
would buy it for N100, 000.
“I have five children but I’m not married, and I have not
sold any of my children, but I have sold two children,
starting with the child of a pastor that I first stole. I’m
pregnant and I have agreed to sell it to madam for
N100,000 when I will deliver of the baby.”
She said the medical doctors were helping her in the
trafficking because they had ready market through a nurse
that was still at large.
She said, “Madam (Evangelist) brought three of us(girls)
from Ebonyi to Anambra state and took us to a shrine in
Asaba where she collected our blood for voodoo so that we
will not reveal to anybody the type of business we do”.
She insisted that the two medical doctors aided her in the
trafficking of the two children.
Speaking Dr Ugorji said he had not seen Chidimma before
and he had not done any transaction with her.
Ugorji who said his hospital was located at Awada, Obosi,
near Onitsha said the nurse, now at large, who Chidmma
allegedly named as his accomplice in child trafficking only
came to his hospital to conduct blood sample tests in his
laboratory.
He said, “I have not done anything again with the nurse
blood sample test and I don’t know this girl (Chidimma)
because I have not seen her before. I was surprised to see
the police storm my hospital yesterday (Wednesday) and
was talking about child trafficking and today they brought
us here.”
For his part, Dr Tobechukwu, who said his hospital was at
Nkpor, near Onitsha, said a woman brought Chidimma to
his hospital for blood test.
“This woman (Chidimma) has a medical condition, which I
won’t want to discuss here. She was brought by one
woman, who said she was a nurse. I didn’t document their
addresses because we did not do any treatment. What we
did was blood test and they left.
“ I’m from Enugu said and I’m working in somebody’s
hospital at Nkpor. I have nothing to do with child
trafficking.
Parading the suspects at the Anambra Police command
headquarters at Amawbia, the Police Public Relations
officer, Nkeiru Nwode said the suspects were arrested on
Wednesday after a tip off.
She said Chidimma had come to Idoma village in Umuoji,
Idemili North of the state and stolen a four year old boy but
luck ran against her as people raised the alarm and she
was apprehended.
The PPRO said before the incident Chidimma had stolen a
child belonging to a pastor in the state.
Nwode alleged that the doctors were accomplices who
would link the traffickers to ready markets.
She said two of the accomplices, a nurse and a female
evangelist, whose names were not given at of press, were
still at large.
