Lady Conspires With Her Boyfriend To Sell Sister’s Daughter

A young woman, Chinedu Chukwu, has been arrested by the police for abducting and selling her elder sister’s four-year-old daughter.

The girl, Chinecherem Irechukwu, is a primary school pupil in Enugu State. The police was notified after Chinecherem did not return from school.

Spokesman, the state Police Command, Mr. Ebere Amaraizu, who confirmed the development, said the case was referred to Gender/Anti-Human Trafficking Section of the state Criminal Intelligence and Investigations Department.

The section is headed by Superintendent of Police, Udoka Gloria, and supervised by a Deputy Commissioner of Police, Janet Agbede.

In the course of investigation, it was discovered that Chinedu, younger sister of Chinecherem’s mother and her boyfriend, Chinonso Osunkwo, travelled down from Anambra State, where they reside, to abduct Chinecherem from her school.

It was learnt that Chinedu and her boyfriend took Chinecherem to Ihe-Olokoro, a town in Umuahia, Abia State, where the little girl was sold to one Florence Nwokocha.

Florence reportedly paid N350,000 for the four-year old girl.

Following their arrest, Chinedu and her boyfriend led police to Florence, who was equally arrested.

Chinecherem was subsequently recovered following serious efforts by the police.

Police spokesman said that they are on the trail of an unnamed person, who harboured Chinecherem in Aba. Little Chinecherem has been reunited with his parents.
