‘Why I sold my son for N250,000’- Father Makes Stunning Confession

A 23-year-old father who had the nerve to sell off his own baby boy in an Abia State community, has opened up about the truly criminal act.

Kingsley Eze, confessed that he sold his five months old baby boy for N250,000 due to lack of money to raise and train him.

According to Punch, Eze made the confession while in the custody of the police in Umuahia, the Abia State capital, where he further disclosed that he had agreed with his girlfriend to sell the baby before luck ran out on them.

”I am a mechanic. I was arrested for child trafficking. The baby is mine; my fiancee gave birth to him. We decided to sell the baby because I wasn’t making enough money to take care of him and the mother,” Eze said.

Eze was arrested alongside another child trafficking suspect, Chinkata Chikezie, who reportedly sold his five-year-old son for an undisclosed amount.

Meanwhile, Chikezie’s arrest came after his wife reported to the police that she woke up on October 16, 2017, and discovered that her baby was missing and the door to their room was open.

The complainant had raised the alarm and attracted the attention of her neighbours who searched for the missing boy, and when the villagers sighted her husband returning home that morning, they handed him over to the police for questioning.

He however, confessed that he sold his son in connivance with one Kelechi John and Chikezie Ubabuike, who have also been arrested, with the child recovered too by the Police.

 ”During interrogation, Chikezie confessed that he sold his son in connivance with one Kelechi John and Chikezie Ubabuike.
Police operatives attached to the division swung into action, arrested the other suspects, and recovered the child.”
The Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr. Anthony Ogbizi, confirmed the arrest of the suspects. He said they would be charged to court as soon as the command concluded investigation into the cases.
“Child trafficking is a serious crime against children, which is forbidden by our laws. As law enforcement agents, our duty is to investigate any case reported to us and unmask those behind the crime.”
