Mother of 11 arrested for attempting to sell sons for N1.8m

CITIZENS COMPASSA mother of three identified as Chinyere Chukwu has been apprehended for attempting to sell her two sons for the sum of N1. 8m in Anambra State.
The 38 years old woman was apprehended by the Anambra State Government, through the Ministry of Women and Social Welfare. 
The woman, who hails from Okija in the Ihiala Local Government Area of the State, was said to have connived with her 17-year-old daughter, identified as Joy, to sell off her two sons “due to the economic hardship in the country.”
Chukwu, while being interrogated, explained that she had 11 kids and decided to sell two of them when she could not cater to them.
The state Commissioner for Women and Social Welfare, Ify Obinabo, led some security operatives to arrest the suspects late on Tuesday after posing as buyers for the children when information about the transaction got to the ministry.
She said, “I have 11 kids and when I could not cater to them, I decided to sell two of them. Since they are boys, the prices were kept at N1 million each but after serious bargaining by the commissioner, who posed as the buyer, we decided to sell them at N1.8 million, instead of the initial N2 million.
“I developed an interest in the business and decided to embark on such adventure after my neighbour successfully sold one of her kids. This was my first attempt at the business.
