Police have arrested a woman identified as Blessing Agoro 35-year-old, after she allegedly sold her two daughters, Semilore Agoro (four) and Deborah Agoro(two).
The lady was arrested by Ogun State Police officers after a report was lodged at Redeemed Camp division by her husband, Oluwaseyi Agoro.
The PPRO said, “The man stated further that all efforts to make his wife tell him the whereabouts of the children proved abortive, hence his report.”
“Upon the report, the DPO Redeemed Camp division, CSP Alabi Akinjide, detailed his detectives to apprehend the suspect, who had already been with the camp’s code of conduct department.”
“On interrogation, the suspect explained to the police that her husband left home for the past two years, and while he was away, she found it difficult to cater for the two children with her other two children she had for another man.”
“She stated further that while she was contemplating on what to do, one Kolawole Imoleayo introduced her to a couple in Port Harcourt who was in need of children. She sold the two daughters to the couple at the rate of three hundred thousand naira (N300,000).”
“Her confession led to the arrest of the said intermediary, Kolawole Imoleayo. They are both assisting the police in their investigation.”
