According to a report filed by CorrectNG, a 30-year-old man named Daniel Chigozie has been detained by Amotekun Corps agents for allegedly selling his nine-month-old son to three separate buyers.

According to David Akinremi, the Commandant of the Corps in Ogun State, the agency got information that the father had serially traded his son, Daniel Chinonye Darlington.

According to him, Chigozie sold the young child to three separate buyers at various locations in the Lagos neighbourhoods of Sango, Meiran, and Apapa. Between August 2022 and February 2023, unidentified purchasers paid the suspect, a resident of Abela in Sango Ota, Ado-Odo/Ota Local Government Area of Ogun State, N150,000, N400,000, and N700,000.

Akinremi claims that the corps’ investigation showed that the man, who is suspected of working with a criminal organization, developed a method for retrieving his son from each buyer after each sale until he sold him to the final buyer, a Dr Nosa in Apapa.

Chigozie confessed to the murder in his confessional statement. The National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) is profiling him in preparation for a follow-up investigation to locate the minor and for criminal prosecution. In related events, a 17-year-old boy named Noble Uzuchi was detained in Rivers State for having an unplanned pregnancy with 10 women.

The suspect was apprehended along with his partner, Chigozie Ogbonna, 29, by the State Police command.

The two suspects are reportedly operating a baby factory with two other women, Favour Bright, 30, and Peace Alikoi, 40, according to Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Grace Iringe-Koko. She claimed that Uzuchi and Ogbonna were detained as a result of a report.

According to Iringe-Koko, the four suspects operated in the Obio/Akpor and Ikwerre local government areas of the state.

The Police PRO said their base of operations was raided, leading to the rescue of the 10 pregnant ladies and the arrest of the suspects.

The statement reads; “On Saturday, January 7, 2023, around 4.45 pm, while acting on credible intelligence available to the Rivers State Police Command, C4I Intelligence Unit operatives raided two houses at Igwuruta and Omagwa communities respectively, where victims of child trafficking were being kept. The victims rescued in the operation are 10, most of them pregnant.”

Iringe-Koko also said investigations revealed that when a victim gives birth to her baby, the syndicate leader kept the child and paid her a sum of N500,000 and that some of the babies previously delivered in the house had been sold.

“All the victims confessed that they were lured to the illicit sales of children because of the need to meet some financial challenges. A Honda Pilot Jeep, white, was recovered from the syndicate leader,” she added.
