Blessing Ebuneku Agoro, 35, is wanted by the police in Ogun State for selling her two biological daughters, Semilore Agoro (4 years) and Deborah Agoro (2 years) for N300,000.
The lady allegedly sold the children without her husband’s knowledge, according to Oluwaseyi Agoro, who reported the incident to the police.
On Sunday, Abimbola Oyeyemi, the State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), informed Newsmen that the husband reported to the Redeemed Camp Divisional Headquarters that he went on a trip and returned on Tuesday without seeing his two daughters.
According to the PPRO, Oluwaseyi told the police that efforts to make his wife tell him the whereabouts of the girls yielded no result.
“Upon the report, the DPO of the Redeemed Camp Division, CSP Alabi Akinjide, detailed his detectives to apprehend the suspect, who was already with the camp’s code of conduct department.
“On interrogation, the suspect explained to the police that her husband left home for the past two years and while he was away, she found it difficult to cater for the two children, with her other two children she had for another man,” it said.
She explained that while thinking of what to do, one Kolawole Imoleayo introduced her to a Port Harcourt couple, who she said were in dire need of children.
“She sold the two daughters to the couple at the rate of 300,000,” Oyeyemi said.
The police image maker added that her confession led to the arrest of the said Imoleayo; “they were both assisting the police in the investigation,” the PPRO confirmed.
