2016, Promise Godwin perfected the
purchase deal of little Chisom at the

to now late Sunday Okafor of Umudi Lokpanta in Abia State whose major
occupation is to get and sell babies to
prospective buyers within Uturu,

sales understanding between Ezinne
and Promise with Gloria Okafor, little
Chisom Raphael was taken to Limca
bus stop at Okigwe, Imo State, along Enugu Port-Harcourt Expressway,
Okigwe where Chisom was sold to
Gloria Okafor at the rate of N300, 000
and money given to the mother of
Chisom in cash. “On coming back to Enugu, the
suspects shared the money as
follows:N200, 000 to Ezinne, the
mother of the sold child, N50, 000 to
Promise, while the remaining N50, 000
went to the motorcyclist working with Godwin Promise at the Four Corner
Brothel where she is staying”, he
added. According to Amaraizu, Gloria Okafor,
having been nabbed, revealed how
she bought the child from the duo of
Ezinne and Promise but maintained
that the child was later handed over to
the buyer that same day and that the buyer was now at large and further

with a child of one year and a month,
has also perfected arrangement to sell
off the baby whom she named Chiadikaobi to a prospective buyer

their investigations and begging for
forgiveness but however blamed the
situation to act of satan. “Meanwhile, the state Commissioner of
