A prostitute who saw that her newly born baby could be a hindrance to her stock in trade sold him for N600,000 which is equivalent to ₵14,000.
The s.ex worker, Mary Olatayo has thus been arrested together with her friend and accomplice, Chioma Esther Ogbonna.
Apparently, the father of the baby lodged a complaint with the police after he said he did everything possible to know the whereabouts of his baby to no avail.
The police shed light on this report by saying;
“He complained further that the lady suddenly disappeared with the baby from the apartment three weeks after delivery, only for her to be found in a hotel, where she allegedly went for a “h%okup” with another man. He said all efforts to know where the baby was proved futile.
On interrogation, Olatayo confessed to the Police that she has sold the baby to someone in Anambra State for N600,000. She confessed that it was her friend, Chioma Esther Ogbonna, who led her to the buyer in Anambra State and that they both shared the money equally. Her confession led to the arrest of Ogbonna, who also corroborated Olatayo’s claims.
Further investigation revealed that Olatayo, a native of Omu-Aran in Kwara State, is a call girl, who sees the baby as a disturbance to her business, hence she decided to do away with the baby,” the statement reads in part.
