The Plateau State Police command has arrested an 18 year old girl named Talatu Abdullahi of new Abuja in Jos South LGA for conspiring and selling her 6 weeks born baby to one Nancy Ezekiel, a 29 year old business woman from Mangu LGA who goes to Imo State to buy palm oil.
Nancy insisted on being innocent, she said “we had an agreement and swore to keep it between us; she gave me the baby to raise as mine”.
Talatu Abdullahi also denied any plan to sell her baby, saying she reported the child missing at the Police Station to cover her track. “I went ahead with the plan of giving up my baby following threats I received from my father of killing me for having a child out of wedlock” she said.
Both ladies were remanded under police custody as investigation on the matter commenced.
