Couple Sells Their Daughter To Pay Rent, Set Up Business

The Cross River State Police Command has arrested a couple for allegedly selling their 6-year-old daughter for N400,000.

Parading the couple before newsmen, Police Commissioner Hafiz Inuwa said the suspects were arrested at Ikom Local Government area on April 26 following a tip-off.

According to CP Inuwa, the couple sold the child to enable them to offset their house rent and open up a provision shop.

“On April 26, 2017, following a tip-off, our men arrested a couple, George-Sunday Udoh and his wife Victoria, for allegedly selling their daughter at the cost of N400,000. The suspects were arrested by our operatives attached to the Ikom division.

“The case has been transferred to State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department here in Calabar and investigation is ongoing,’’ he said.

NAN reports that the father of the child, however, denied selling the child.

“It is true that we don’t have money and things are very hard with me and my wife, but we did not sell our baby for N400,000,’’ he said.
