Must read

The Rivers State Police Command has initiated an investigation into an alleged incident involving a woman attempting to sell her five-year-old son in Port Harcourt.

According to reports gathered by our correspondent at the scene of the alleged crime, the woman, identified as Onyinye, purportedly took her son to a popular market located on Bishop Okoye Street in the Mile 3 area of Port Harcourt on Saturday.

A dramatic confrontation unfolded when some traders confronted the woman upon suspecting her intentions, which she attributed to hardship.

The traders, questioning the legitimacy of the woman’s claim to the child, apprehended her and subsequently escorted her to the police station to report the incident, resulting in her arrest.

One of the traders remarked, “The way I see the woman, I don’t think she is normal because of how she was acting.”

Confirming the incident on Monday, Grace Iringe-Koko, spokesperson for the state police command, affirmed that the matter is under investigation.

She stated, “The woman was brought to the station by some persons who alleged she came to the market to sell her child. We are investigating the matter to ascertain the veracity of the eyewitnesses’ claims. Meanwhile, the woman is still with the police.”
