The Nigeria police has arrested George Maduabuchi for allegedly selling his 14 month old son for N300,000 (5,191Ghana cedis) to an herbalist.

Maduabuchi, a native of Owerrinta, is reported to have connived with his accomplice, Obinna Erondu who is now at large, to sell his own child, Punch reports.


Narrating how her son was allegedly sold by her husband, Ebere, the pregnant wife of George said after her child had developed a  cough, her husband had asked to take him out to get some medicine only for him to return without the boy. When she asked the man where their son was, he couldn't give her a good explanation. She said she quickly raised an alarm which attracted their neighbors who called the police

"When I demanded explanations on the whereabouts of our son, he could not offer any convincing answer.” she said

Confirming her statement, the State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Joshak Habila said; "Luck ran out on Maduabuchi when the wife alerted the police on his questionable role when the baby fell ill and he took him out and did not return with him.”.

When interrogated, the suspect denied selling his son, but says he took him to an herbalist who offered to cure him and also gave him some money

"The herbalist gave me money and told me that he could not heal the baby. I therefore left the baby in the herbalist’s home.”he said

The police is still investigating the matter
