Nigerian police arreǝst 24-year-old lady who s0ld her brother to a traff!cker for N410,000 and gave the money to her boyfriend to purchase the items needed for their traditional wedding

A Nigerian lady by the name of Blessing Okonkwo has been apprehended by the Nigerian Police for selling her three-year-old brother Friday Okonkwo for N410,000 in Adamawa State.

She had carried out the act after she lied to their mother that she had made plans to enroll him in a school, but it was all a lie.

Instead, she sold the young boy for the sum of N410,000 to one Efunaya Nabufe who trafficked him to Enugu State.

After she was apprehended, she confessed that it was the state of the country that drove her to that extent, then went on to explain what she did with the money.

She said; “I used the proceeds of the crime to buy a grinding machine so I can start a business and also gave my boyfriend N200,000 to buy items required for our tradition wedding.”

The mother of the victim who is shocked at her daughter’s action, has narrated her part of the story.

Recounting the incidence, she said;

“I used the proceed of the crime to buy a grinding machine so I can start a business and also gave my boyfriend N200,000 to buy items required for our tradition wedding Ever since she took away the boy I never heard from him, because any time I called to hear his voice she kept telling me one lie or the other for one year now. I got tired of asking and since I least suspected my own daughter could do this to me, I didn’t raise any alarm As God will have it, she took a proposed husband home to her father in the southeast, the father demanded to know the whereabouts of his child first before attending to her marriage proposal She then lied to him that the kid was dead, but the father consulted an oracle and was told the child was alive. He then threatened her and she opened up and told him the truth; that he was living with a woman in Enugu When her father informed me, I reported the matter to the police who swiftly arrested her and her accomplice, the child trafficker, one Efunaya Nabufe”
