It was however appalling that A couple,George-Sunday Udoh and Victoria George-Sunday,has been arrested by the Cross River State Police Command for allegedly putting up their six-year-old daughter for sale at the cost of N400,000.

It was gathered that the couple had decided to sell their child in order to raise money to rent their own apartment in Ikom, headquarters of Ikom Local Government Area of the state.

Parading the couple alongside 28 other suspected criminals to journalists in Calabar,Cross River state Commissioner of Police,Mr Hafiz Inuwa,said that the couple was arrested in Ikom following a tip-off.

A top police source said the couple had confessed to the crime, and also added that the deal was foiled by a decoy policeman.

He said From their confession, the wife had given birth to Favour for another man before getting married to Udoh.But the couple took her as their daughter.They also have two other children together.They have been living with the man’s sister but they are not comfortable in the house because of insults.So, they agreed and decided as a couple to sell the girl and use the money to get accommodation.They actually placed her for sale at N1.5m. A police went to pose as the buyer and they agreed for N400, 000.They were even telling the decoy policeman that the girl was old enough to do house chores.hmmmm

The commissioner of police, however,said that the couple sold the child out of poverty.

The suspects were arrested by the police operatives attached to the Ikom division.The case has been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department there in Calabar and investigation is currently ongoing.

Mother of the girl has simply refused to comment on the matter.

She simply said, “I do not know what they are talking about.”

Wonders they say will never end....
