A Liberian, Daniel Barnney, is being held by the police for allegedly selling his nine-month-old son Emmanuel to a 43-year-old woman, Ekah Richard, for N250,000.
Barnney, one Pastor Samuel Osavitu and a worker at an orphanage, Alhaji Sunkanmi Adamu, are being quizzed at Festac Police Station over the matter.
Barnney’s Nigerian wife Ijeoma Ndoku raised the alarm over his plan to.....sell their son and flee to Ghana last month.
The police arrested Barnney at Mile 2 on February 12 and recovered the baby from Richard.
Ndoku said she and Barnney have been quarrelling because she did not allow him to take the baby to his aunt, who she never saw.
She debunked Barnney’s claims of abandoning the child, accusing him of fleeing with the boy on their way to buy groceries.
Drop a comment....thanks!
