The police have arrested a housewife and detained her at Area M Command, Idimu for allegedly selling four out of her five children to different people without the knowledge of her husband.
The wife simply identified as Vicky was arrested following a petition by her husband to the Area Commander, Assistant Commissioner of Police, ACP Austines Akika.
Police sources said the suspect was selling the children one after the other and successfully sold four, remaining just a child. What is her mission?
According to PM Express, she lied to her husband that she took the kids to their relation until the husband later discover she has sold them to some undisclosed buyers.
The secret came to the open recently after she sold the last child for N400,000 and her husband was tipped by their neighbour who knew about it.
Thus, the husband reported to the police and she was arrested and detained at the Command Cell.
She was said to have already confessed to the police while efforts were already being made to rescue the children and arrest the buyers.
However, investigations revealed the illegal sales without her husband knowing happened because the man, who rented an apartment in Idimu area of Lagos, was working outside Lagos, where he stays during the week and only return home weekend or monthly.
It was gathered while the husband was away, the woman plotted to be selling the children and deceived her husband they were taken to their relations.
It was learnt that the husband’s efforts to locate the relations where the wife claimed she took those children to was fruitless.
This makes the man to be suspicious before her acts were finally exposed.
As at the time of this report, the wife was still detained at the cell.
