Reports reaching Legit.ng claim that a woman has been arrested for selling her baby boy. The mother in question is 23 years of age. She is named Chinonye Oparaocha. The Imo State police command nabbed her after they got news that she sold her baby just 6 hours after his birth.

The event which happened on February 2, 2019, took place at a clinic along Nekede road in Owerri, Imo state. According to Chinonye, she had conspired with a woman named Confidence Anyanwu.

This woman was a 28-year-old nurse. Together with her husband, Amaeze Anyanwu, Confidence plotted with Chinonye on how to sell off the young baby. It was alleged that Amaeze who is now nowhere to be found carried the 6-hour-old baby to Port-Harcourt, Rivers.

Here, a certain person named Duru Christian was waiting for him. As soon as Amaeze arrived, Dur met with him alongside another individual named George Iyowuna.
