A housewife in Delta State, simply identified as Eunice, has been arrested for allegedly attempting to sell her two-year-old neighbour’s baby for N250,000.
Eunice reportedly sold the baby to a woman in Lagos who is said to have been married for 18 years without a child.
Leadership Newspaper reports that Eunice got custody of the baby last Wednesday, January 14 when her neighbour appealed to her to help look after the baby while she ran some errands in the market. Eunice then carried the baby to her buyer and a deal was sealed.
It was revealed that Eunice disappeared after she sold the baby; police however acted swiftly on a tip from a neighbour who sighted her when she was selling the baby and traced Eunice to a hotel in Ore Community of Ondo State where she was apprehended.
Eunice is currently helping the police to track the buyer of the baby while being held at the state CID in Asaba.
