Policemen of the Area M Command, Idimu have arrested a woman who allegedly sold her four children in Lagos state.
According to PM express, the woman sold four out of her five children to different buyers without the knowledge of her husband.
A petition by her husband to the Area Command, Assistant Commissioner of Police, ACP Austines Akika, led to the arrest of woman simply identified as Vicky.
Police revealed that the suspect was selling the children one after the other and successfully sold four, leaving out only one.
The police said Vicky had lied to her husband that she took the kids to their relation until the husband later discovered she had sold them.
Her strange commercial activity was exposed after she sold the last child for N400,000 and her husband was tipped by a neighbour.
The husband reported to the police and she was arrested and detained at the Command cell.
She was said to have already confessed to the police while efforts were already being made to rescue the children and arrest the buyers.
It was reported that the woman was able to carry out the illegal sales without her husband’s knowledge because the husband, who rented an apartment in Idimu area of Alimosho Local Government Area, works outside Lagos, where he stays during the week and returns home weekend or monthly.
The woman is still in detention while the police are carrying out investigations to locate the whereabouts of the children.
