Spokesperson of the command, Haruna Mohammed, who confirmed this to newsmen in Awka, the Anambra state capital weekend, said the couple was apprehended following intelligence report.
According to him, “The Command arrested a man and his wife for selling their three-day-old baby boy at the rate of N300,000.
He added: “Following intelligence report, Police detectives attached to Area Command, Ihiala arrested one Chinonso Anyanwu, aged 32 years and Oluebube Anyawu, aged 20 years of lbiasiegbe village, Imo State.
“Suspects conspired and sold their biological child, a baby boy of three days old at a rate of N300,000 to one Sandra Odimege of Umuezike, Amorka in Ihiala LGA of Anambra State.
“The three suspects have been arrested and the baby recovered in good condition.” saying the suspects would be charged to court after investigation.
African Examiner learnt from a source who craved anonymity that the couple had three daughters before they got the baby boy.
It was further gathered that the couple, who are from Imo State, allegedly sold the male child to one Sandra Odimege of Umuezike, Amorka, in Ihiala council Area of Anambra State, where the police found the baby with her.
The command, however, advised those who engage in such unholy act to desist from it, as no perpetrator would go unpunished if nabbed by security operatives.
