A 52 year old man, Udoh Abraham, was paraded by the Cross River State Police Command for allegedly selling his son for N150,000.
His wife was unaware that he sold his two-year-old son.
The Commissioner of Police for Cross River, Mr. Hafiz Inuwa, said that the suspect was arrested on July 24 after the wife, Esther Abraham, reported the matter to the police.
Investigations were carried out by the police and they discovered that Udoh has sold the child for N150,000 to an unidentified woman residing at Uyo in Akwa Ibom State.
The sum of N103,000 was recovered from him by the police.
There are still investigations going on so that the police will be able to find and arrest the alleged buyer and recover the child.
In his defence, Mr. Abraham said: “I sold the child because I needed money. I have six children and I am really sorry for not telling my wife about it.”
