Woman sells twins for N400,000.00


Five suspects including a couple are at present cooling their heels at the headquarters of the Delta State Police Command in Asaba, for alleged involvement in the sale of a set of twins (a boy and a girl). The suspects include a couple, Augustine and Ebere, Anwulie, the alleged buyer and Ebele, who served as middleman in the deal.

Also arrested is one Onyeogali, a staff of the Welfare Department of the state Ministry of Women Affairs said to have masterminded the deal. Investigation revealed that Ebere was delivered of a set of twins at the Federal Medical Centre (FMC), Asaba and was allegedly under pressure from one Ebele (F) who resides in Ogwashi-Uku to sell the babies.

The said Ofuani, it was further gathered, linked up with Onyeogali of the Welfare Department who allegedly masterminded the sale of the infants to a Lagos-based woman, Anwulie at the rate of N200,000 each. Public Relations Officer of the state police command, ASP Lucky Uyabeme who confirmed the arrest of the suspect, stated that the local vigilance group in Asaba burst the syndicate. “On April 21 at about 15:10 hours, the chairman of Asaba Community Policing, Mr. Anthony C.M. Okonkevo arrested a couple, one Augustine (M) and Ebere (F) of back of NTA Asaba, for child stealing and handed them over to the DPO ‘A’ Division Police State, Asaba,” Uyabeme stated.

The police spokesman however added that after interrogation, it was discovered that the said Ebere delivered the set of twins before selling them to Okogwu. According to Uyabeme, her confession led to the arrest of others, adding that investigation was still going in the matter. He informed that the babies, who were recovered from the alleged buyer, had been handed over to the Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Welfare, Asaba for proper care.
