A 51-year-old wom­an, Rose Edward, has landed in po­lice net for allegedly buy­ing a 2-month-old baby for N450,000.

Akwa Ibom Commis­sioner of Police, Mr Murtala Mani, disclosed this yester­day in Uyo while briefing newsmen.

Mani who spoke through the Akwa Ibom Police Com­mand’s spokesperson, ASP Cordelia Nwanwe, said that a homeopathtic doctor, En­eyo Nyang, was arrested in connection with the crime.

He said that Edward from Rivers State confessed to have bought the baby be­cause she needed a baby of her own.

Confessing to the crime, the mother of the baby, Com­fort Effiong, said that she sold her baby because there was no one to take care of her.

“I sold the baby because of help; I don’t have anybody to help me. My father is late and my mother is sick and I don’t have anybody to help me,” Ef­fiong said.

Mani assured the people of Akwa Ibom State that the command would not relent in its effort to curb crime in the state. He warned members of the public wishing to adopt children to follow due process.
