Enugu State Command of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC yesterday paraded a woman identified as Nkechi Isioko from Mpu in Anirmri Local Government Area of Enugu for allegedly attempting to sell her baby for One Hundred Thousand Naira (N100,000).
Isioko was alleged to have planned to sell the baby to one Mrs. Blessing Egbo for N100,000 before operatives of NSCDC got information and arrested her and the suspected buyer.
The daredevil lady told newsmen after she was paraded alongside some suspected prostitutes and pipeline vandals at the headquarters of the NSCDC in Enugu, that Mrs. Egbo initially gave her part payment of N10,000 and later completed the money.
She alleged that she later gave back the N100,000 to Mrs. Egbo after she was advised not to sell her own baby, adding that she wanted to sell the baby because she needed money to treat herself.
Speaking while parading the suspects, the commandant of the corps in Enugu State, Mr. Lar Stephen Zwali, warned pipeline vandals to look for another business, saying his command has intensified surveillance.
He averred that the suspects were caught at Nenwe in Aninri Local Government in the night while they were vandalising the pipelines.
The NCSDC Commandant further told journalists that, though the NNPC repaired the pipelines before it commenced pumping of petroleum products to it’s depot in Enugu, his command had informed the corporation of the development.
He further advised human traffickers and prostitutes to find another business, warning that his command was committed to stopping their illegal business.
The Chairman of the Committee on Child Adoption and fostering in Enugu state and Archbishop of the Anglican Communion, Enugu state Province, Most Reverend Emmanuel Chukwuma, who also spoke to reporters warned that the state would no longer be conducive for human traffickers and prostitutes.
He stated that the state governor, ifeanyi Ugwuanyi had directed them to stop prostitution and illegal sale and adoption of babies.
