    22-year-old lady arrested in Lagos for selling off her day-old baby


    A 22-year old lady identifier as Onyinyechi Osoneye has been arrested after a failed attempt to sell her newborn baby somewhere in Lagos State.

    Onyinyechi was caught by an undercover team of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) of the Lagos Police Command, while trying to sell her baby to Mr and Mrs Ike Nwata.

    Investigations revealed she had planned with her mother to hide her pregnancy from her father because she wasn't married. This especially had to be done because the man who got her pregnant had already denied responsibility. 

    Onyinyechi was delivered of her baby boy on March 1, 2017, at the Peninsula hospital in Ikota, Lekki, Lagos state, by one Mrs Glory Ehinmi, who she claimed took her baby away from her. Even though she had initially denied being pregnant or even selling her baby, she revealed that Ehinmi had given her baby to one Mrs Prisca Okocha, who offered her mother N250,000 for him. Further investigations revealed that Okocha who owns the Peculiar hospital in Orile, had also contacted one Mrs Regina Anyanwu, who then brought the Nwatas to buy the baby.
