An artisan Kingsley Oriaku, has prioritised the burial of his father-in-law over his daughter and neigbour's child.

His father-in-law passed on and in other to impress his in-laws, he decided to do the unthinkable by selling his daughter. As if that was not enough, he put for sale also his neigbour's child.

He confessed to kidnapping his neighbour’s seven-year-old son, Gabriel Yanga, barely two months after he moved to the area, adding that he used the N310,000 he realised from the sale of the two children for the burial of his father-in-law.

The 37-year-old Abia State indigene sold his daughter in September 2017 for N190,000 to the operator of an orphanage home in Aba, Abia State, through a self-acclaimed evangelist, Adaeze Obi.

Two days after selling the daughter, he returned to his Lagos residence and reportedly lured Yanga out of the compound, while her mother was not at home.

He was alleged to have subsequently taken him to Obi in Abia State, who linked him up with one Loveth Nwako.

Nwako was said to have led Kingsley and Yanga to her sister in Anambra State.

The sister, Ngozi, collected the child and gave the artisan N120,000.

The suspects were arrested in November by operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Lagos State Command, Ikeja, where Yanga’s parents reported the case.

Kingsley was paraded at the command headquarters in Ikeja on Monday along with two of the accomplices, Nwako and Obi.

He confessed that he sold the children to raise funds for the burial of his father-in-law in Abia State.
