How mother deceived husband, sold newborn baby for N500k

A new mother, Mrs Chinasa Ukaonu was recently arrested for selling her own newborn baby for N500, 000 in Imo State.

Trouble started when Mrs. Ukaonu left her home with an 8- month-old pregnancy, informing her husband, Promise Ukaonu, that she was going to stay with her brother for a while at Mbaitoli.


However, few days after she left home, she sent a message to her husband that she lost the pregnancy. She then proceeded to a baby factory where she gave birth with the help of two nurses, Esomonu Dorathy and Eke Catherine.


Not satisfied with the story his wife told him, Promise decided to report the matter to the police.
