The baby boy, Agbanwe Omogo and his 17-year-old mother were lured by a family friend, Chinonye Agu, from their community, Abogodo, in Ohaukwu Local Government Area of Ebonyi State to Onitsha in Anambra State.

The suspected trafficker was said to have drugged the teenage mother and took her baby away.

They later sold him to one Philip from Awgu in Enugu State, who later sold the baby boy to other persons in Kogi and Abuja.

The nursing mother’s uncle invited the police to arrest the woman trafficker when she brought the baby’s mother back to Ohaukwu to inform him that the baby died in Onitsha when his mother developed mental illness. 

The baby’s mother alleged that before her baby was sold for N910,000, she was drugged with herbs by the suspected trafficker, who later took her to a shrine in Kogi State unconscious.

Her uncle, Cyprian Enyi, commended NAPTIP and Ebonyi State Police Command for recovering the baby and arresting the suspects but regretted that she eventually lost her father following the incident.

Confirming the arrest, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Loveth Odah, said the suspects had been charged to court and warned citizens of the state to desist from such horrible deeds.
