Police arrest man for selling three-month old baby in Lagos
Daniel Chigozie, a guy, is in hot water in Lagos State when it was discovered that he had colluded with a doctor and a nurse to sell his three-month-old child for ₦400,000 without his wife's permission.

According to reports, he was detained along with his conspirators, a doctor and a nurse, and is currently being questioned at the State Police Command in Lagos State.

The incident occurred on August 20, 2022, in the Lagos neighbourhood of Oke-Odo, where the deal took place until they were apprehended by police on August 25, 2022, and the infant was subsequently saved.

This was disclosed by the Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, who confirmed that the suspects are in Police custody undergoing interrogation over the conduct.

He explained that the baby’s father, Chigozie, after allegedly conniving with his doctor, Musa Peter, and a nurse, Ezieke Chinenye, had sold the baby to another woman, identified as Chinyere Ezeobi, without the knowledge of the baby’s mother.

However, the whole thing got exposed after a fruitless search for the baby and the Police were informed after which the suspects were eventually arrested.

“The father connived with his doctor and nurse and sold his three-month old baby to a woman for N400, 000 without the knowledge of the mother. After days of searching, the Police were informed. All suspects were arrested. The baby is safe’’ SP Hundeyin said.

According to Police sources, the man, Chigozie, claimed that he did so because he needed money and did not inform his wife about the deal because she will not accept. And so, he decided to do it with the doctor and the nurse before they were caught.

SP Hundeyin said that the suspects will be charged before the Court for the alleged conspiracy and stealing but that will be after the conclusion of investigations by the Police.
