Commissioner of Police in Ogun State, Mr. Lanre Bankole, has asked detectives to take any step possible towards successful search and recovery of three weeks old baby boy who was sold to a yet - to - be Iocated buyer.

The baby was allegedly sold for N600,000.00 to the unknown buyer, who is believed to hail from Anambra State, Southeastern geopolitical zone of Nigeria.

The mother of the baby; Mary Olatayo and one Ms Chioma Esther Ogbonna from Imo State who facilitated the deal between the baby's mother and the buyer, have been arrested.

The Police Spokesperson in the state, Superintendent of Police (SP) Abimbola Oyeyemi disclosed to newsmen that the baby's mother and her accomplice were arrested August 18, 2022.

Explaining further, Oyeyemi stated, "The suspect was arrested following a complaint from the father of the baby, who reported at Mowe divisional headquarters that, he met Mary Olatayo sometimes ago and they started dating each other. He stated further that, Mary got pregnant in the process and he rent  an apartment for her where she lived till she was delivered of the baby boy. He complained further that the lady suddenly disappeared with the baby from the apartment 3 weeks after delivery but she later found in an hotel where she had gone for a hookup with another man. All efforts to know where the baby is proved futile. 

On the strength of his complaint, the DPO Mowe division, SP Folake Afeniforo, detailed detectives to the scene where the suspect was arrested and brought to the station. 

On interrogation, Mary Olatayo confessed to the Police that she has sold the baby to someone in Anambra state at the rate of six hundred thousand naira. She confessed that it was her friend Chioma Esther Ogbonna who led her to the buyer in Anambra state and that they both shared the money equally. 

Her confession led to the arrest of Chioma Esther Ogbonna who also corroborated Mary's claims. 

Further investigation revealed that, Mary Olatayo a native of Omu- aran in Kwara state is a call girl, who see the baby as a disturbance to her business  hence she decided to do away with the baby. 
Unfortunately for her, she has an accomplice in Chioma a native of Imo state who quickly contacted the buyer in Anambra state. 

The commissioner of Police, CP Lanre Bankole, has ordered the transfer of the suspects to anti human trafficking and child labour unit of the state criminal investigation Departments for further investigation. The CP also directed that everything possible must be done to recover the baby."
