The Rivers State Police Command has rescued a two-week-old baby boy, who was allegedly sold by the grandmother at birth for N1.3million.
According to the police, Antonia Amos, sold the child because she claimed her daughter’s babydaddy had yet to pay her bride price.
It was gathered that Amos was arrested after the father of the baby, Christian Duru reported the case to the police.
The Commissioner of Police (CP), Joseph Mukan, said the suspect led the Detectives to Ukanafun LGA in Akwa-Ibom State where one Pauline Umoh was arrested. She later led the Police to Mgbidi in Imo State where the buyer, Juliana Obianwa was arrested and the baby recovered.
The CP said efforts are on to arrest others involved in the crime.
