The ugly incident happened at 104, Afam Road, Oyigbo, Rivers State, where the distraught parents of the stolen baby, Mr. and Mrs. Emeka Ekiri and Innocent, were neighbours until December 28, 2017, New Telegraph reports.

A premeditated action, the report says three days before the fleeing suspect perpetrated the act, he relocated his family to Abia State where he hails.

Upon her arrest, Innocent’s wife was said to have told the police that her husband had wanted to sell their baby but for her refusal.

Mr. Ekiri told the paper of his frustration with the police.

He said, “Policemen at the SCID collected N50, 000 from me, which they said they wanted to use to track Ndubusi. I have to look for the money because I didn’t want to fail my daughter. I had to struggle to raise the money. The police were able to trace one phone call linking to Ndubusi at Owerri, Imo State.

“They said I should bring N100,000, which would be used for their movement from Port Harcourt to Owerri. Due to the urgency, I had to run around and raised another N70,000. We went to the place and police arrested one lady, who said that her husband made the call, and that she had separated from him. Her husband was a child trafficker. The police also released her.

“I was tired and lost interest to go to the police anymore. Since then, I have been looking unto God for intervention.”
