Cross River: Six Arrested For Selling Two-Weeks Old Baby For N19,800

Six people have been arrested in south-eastern Nigeria for allegedly selling a two-week old baby.

Police in Cross River state said those arrested included the baby’s mother, who said extreme poverty forced to sell her child for around N19,800 ($90).

Correspondents say the issue of so-called baby factories is still a prevalent problem in the region.

In 2013, 17 pregnant teenage girls and 11 babies were rescued from a house in the south-eastern state of Imo, suspected of planning to sell their babies.
