While handing over the matter to National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) yesterday in Calabar, Controller of Immigration in the State, Adeuyi Funke Cecelia, said the suspects were arrested on December 1, when the baby was still four days old.

Upon interrogation, Ifeanyi said he found the teen mom, Oma Samuel when she was six months pregnant and homeless, sleeping outside a church at Ambo Street. He said he decided to accommodate her until she gave birth.

Although Oma Samuel admitted that Ifeanyi took her in when she was pregnant and had nowhere to stay, the teenage mother said she never agreed that her baby be taken from her.

She said she had no idea what was going on and was tricked out of her baby by the duo.

“Ifeanyi told me that a woman is looking for a wife to her son and I said but I am pregnant already and he said no problem.

Later on when I saw the man, who was an imbecile, I declined the offer. They told me the woman has another son that would marry me.

But when I thought about it, I said no, that I don’t want to marry anybody again. They later stole my baby.”

Be vigilant even be people act kind, you never know the true intentions of a person until they reveal themselves.
