Uncle arrested for stealing and selling his neice for N150, 000 in Abia state

Operatives of Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS) attached to Obehie Division of the Abia State Police Command on May 28th, arrested one Godspower Emeka, 28, of Orji Street Obehie for allegedly stealing his 3-year-old neice, Mercy Emeka, of the same address.

Mercy was sold to Kelvin Ogbunigwu of Omuma in Rivers state for the sum of N150,000.

When newsmen spoke with the Emeka, he said that the load of feeding 11 children in their family was becoming too much, “So when one of my friends Ogbunigwu came and told me that there is someone who would buy the baby I sold her to him”.

When asked why did he not sell one of his children since he said that he is married with children, he said, “It is the devil and I regret my actions and plead that my sister should forgive me for my devilish action”.
