Woman Accused Of Stealing, Selling A Child For N650,000
During police investigations it was revealed that one Akwaja Adaeze kidnapped the minor along Zuba-Suleja Road in Abuja.
He added that Adaeze allegedly took the minor to Imo without the consent of his parents and sold him to Egole for N650,000.
The prosecutor, Mr Fedelix Egwube, told this story on Monday when 48-year-old Adaeze appeared before a Wuse Zone 6 Magistrates’ Court in Abuja.
Egwube also said that the police have released the victim to the parents after appropriate investigation.
The defendant, who is a trader and resides in Imo, had
pleaded not guilty to the two-count charge of criminal conspiracy and
kidnapping leveled against her.
Mr Jeojima Thompson, Counsel to the defendant, thereafter, filed an oral application seeking the court to admit his client to bail.
Thompson said the alleged offences were bailable, adding that his client would always be available to stand justice.
“I assure the court that the defendant would not jump bail if admitted,’’ he said.
The Magistrate, Ahmad Ndajiwo, granted bail to the defendant in the sum of N500,000 with two sureties in like sum.
Ndajiwo said the sureties must reside within the court jurisdiction and he adjourned the case until Nov. 13 for hearing.Please share the story and WATCH the video below:
