Nkechi had allegedly collected the sum of N100, 000 from one Mrs. Blessing Egbo before members of the NSCDC arrested her and the suspected buyer.
She claimed that Mrs. Egbo initially gave her part payment of N10,000, and later gave her the rest of the money.
She further confessed that she later gave back the N100, 000 to Mrs Egbo after she was advised not to sell the baby.
The Chairman of NSCDC advised human traffickers to find legitimate businesses, warning that his command was committed to stopping their illegal business.
The Chairman of the Committee on Child Adoption and Fostering in Enugu State and Archbishop of the Anglican Communion, Enugu Province, Most Reverend Emmanuel Chukwuma, also warned that the state would not be a place of refuge for human traffickers and prostitutes.
He stated that the state governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, had directed them to stop any type of illegal sale and adoption of babies. (Vanguard)
