The police in Bayelsa have been called in to investigate after a woman allegedly sold her day-old child for the sum of N20,000.

The mother, said to be a commercial sex worker who operates within Yenagoa, the state capital, is said to have made the trade with a family resident in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

News of the incident was confirmed by the police spokesperson in the state, Alex Akhigbe who said:

Akhigbe said: “Though the details of the investigation are sketchy, the special unit of the police is on its way to effect the recovery of the baby and arrest the family that bought the child.”

The trend of selling babies has become a cause of concern for police officers even as many “baby factories” continue to sprout up all over the country.
