Heartless Mum Sells Baby

Post by SKOOKID on Sun Aug 04, 2013 8:23 am

The police in Imo State are now investigating how
a 27 year old housewife, Mrs Njideka Okorie
eloped with six months pregnancy and went into
hiding where she was later delivered of a baby girl
which she sold to one Agatha Okoronkwo at Isieka
Ihiala in Anambra State for N100,000.
Saturday Sun gathered that Njideka has been
married to Samuel Okorie , for over 10 years. The
marriage was already blessed with four children
while they were expecting the fifth child, the wife
eloped with six months pregnancy from their
home in Orlu, Imo State.

The housewife also fled her matrimonial home
with the other four children in March and returned
four months after, precisely on July 5, 2013, with
the four kids, but without the pregnancy of their
fifth child.

It was learnt that the inability of Njideka to explain
what happened to their baby led the husband to
lodge a complaint against her at the Orlu police

While confirming the development, the Imo State
Commissioner of Police, Mr Mohammed Katsina
told Saturday Sun that ,” I have to send my ‘Police
Ambush Squad’ to arrest Njideka Okorie and she
confessed that she delivered the baby on June 27,
2013 but that she sold it for N100,000 to one
Agatha Okoronkwo .

She said the child is a female and was sold when
she was three weeks old.”The police boss stated
that the police detectives travelled to Isieka Ihiala in
Anambra State to arrest the suspect, Agatha
Okoronkwo , a civil servant who allegedly bought
the three-week old child.

The complainant, Samuel Okorie told Saturday Sun
that,” I was shocked that before I came to the
house, my wife has eloped with my four children
and my six months old pregnancy she has for me.”
He added that “suddenly, she appeared again after
two months . She came with my four children . But
I didn’t see the pregnancy again and there was no
baby. I was not happy and reported the case to
Orlu police station.”

Okorie explained that, “ It was when my wife was
arrested by the police that she confessed to have
sold a-three week old baby for N100,000 to a
woman in Ihiala in Anambra State. Thank God that
the police recovered the baby.”

“I didn’t quarrel or have any misunderstanding
with her. We were living together in peace. I was
surprised that my wife left the house suddenly “,
he added. In her confessions on why she sold her
baby, Njideka said “ It was the work of the devil. I
have never had any misunderstanding with my
husband . I just left suddenly and I went to deliver
the baby and later sold it for N100,000. I delivered
the baby and sold it after three weeks.

“I came back to my husband’s house and with his
four children and he asked me about the
pregnancy but I didn’t say anything. He later went
to report the matter to the police and I was
arrested. It was then that I confessed that I sold the
child for N100,000. The police followed me to my
father’s house and they recovered N78,000 out of
the N100,000 I received from the sale of the child.”
In her own explanation, Agatha Okoronkwo stated
that “ It was when she (Njideka) contacted me and
I needed a child. I work at the Red Cross
Organization. I bought the child for N100,000. I
needed a baby and bought the three-week old
baby from her in Owerri..”

The state police commissioner said his command
had recovered the baby and handed her over to a
rehabilitation home. He said the suspects will soon
be charged to court after thorough investigation.
