The Enugu State Police Command yesterday, said that it arrested four suspects over allegations of planning the sale of babies within Enugu metropolis.
Spokesman of the command, SP Ebere Amaraizu, disclosed this in a statement in Enugu. He also confirmed the suspects’ arrest on August 21 by police operatives of the Awkunanaw Division of the command, based on intelligence information.
‘‘Four persons that specialise in the illicit business of selling babies and trafficking have been nabbed by police operatives. It was gathered that the suspects, who gave their names as Amarachi Igwe, Chekwube Ofornwa, Gidi Mohammed, all of new Gariki Cattle Market Awkunanaw and One Ndubuisi Eze of Abakpa within Enugu, being a syndicate in this illicit business, were arrested. They were promptly nabbed over their deal to sell a two-month-old male child,’’ he said.
A manhunt, he said, has however been intensified on two other fleeing members of the gang.
