Men of the Imo State Police Command have arrested a woman, Chinasa Ukaonu, for selling her day-old baby for N500,000.
Also arrested were two nurses — Dorothy Esomonu and Catherine Eke, who allegedly assisted the woman to trade her child.
The police spokesperson in the state, Orlando Ikeokwu, told our correspondent that the buyer, Chioma Amadi, had been nabbed.
He said the arrest of the suspects assisted the police in rescuing the child.
Ikeokwu, who described the act as absurd and irritating, disclosed that the state Commissioner of Police, Rabiu Ladodo, had instructed the investigating team to prosecute the suspects at the conclusion of the investigation.
