The state Commissioner of Police, Adamu Ibrahim, who confirmed the arrest Saturday said, Ogbonna arranged with a nurse, identified as Amarachi Chiamaka now at large, to sell the baby few hours after his birth.
“An argument began as the wife insisted on seeing the dead baby. A neighbour who overheard the argument, alerted the Police who intervened and later arrested the man and the accomplice-nurse.” the commissioner revealed.
Ogbonna according to the Abia Police Chief, has confessed that he involved in the ignoble act owing to poverty. The suspect also revealed that his friend who sold the son for him short-changed him, saying he only paid N140, 000 out of the total N500, 000.
