A woman identified  as a Blessing Ebuneku Agoro, has been nabbed by the Police in Ogun State  for selling her two biological daughters; Semilore Agoro, 4, and Deborah Agoro, 2 to a childless couple for N300,000:00k

Blessing claimed she sold her two daughters when she could not cope with cost of catering for them after her husband travelled and was away for  two years. 

The Police Spokesman in Ogun State, Abimbola Oyeyemi, who disclosed this on Sunday said the woman was arrested when her husband reported to the Police that he could not find his children anymore. 

Abimbola stated : "The suspect was arrested, following a report lodged at Redeemed Camp divisional headquarters by her husband, Oluwaseyi Agoro, who reported that, he travelled for some time, and when he returned on the 8th of June 2021, he couldn't find his two daughters. He stated further that all efforts to make his wife tell him the whereabout of the children proved abortive, hence his report.

"Upon the report, the DPO Redeemed Camp division CSP Alabi Akinjide detailed his detectives to apprehend the suspect, who had already been with  the camp's code of conduct department.

"On interrogation, the suspect explained to the police that, her husband left home for the past two years, and while he was away, she found it difficult to cater for the two children with her other two children she had for another man.

" She stated further that while she was contemplating on what to do, one Kolawole Imoleayo introduced her to a couple in Port Harcourt who are in dare need of children, and she sold the two daughters to the couple at the rate of three hundred thousand naira (300,000).
