For Selling Four Children, Police Arrest Housewife in Lagos

What would make a mother sell her four children? Is it hunger, recession or lucre of the world?
This the question Police in Lagos is trying to unravel as a woman, identified as Vicky, who succeeded in selling four out of her five children without the knowledge of her husband, has been arrested.
Policemen attached to Area M Command, Idimu, Lagos, were said to have effected the arrest of the housewife.
She was alleged to have sold four out of her five children to different buyers without the knowledge of her husband.
She was arrested following a petition by her husband to the Area Commander, Assistant Commissioner of Police, ACP Austines Akika.
Police sources said the suspect was selling the children one after the other and successfully sold four, leaving out only one.
It was learnt that she lied to her husband that she took the kids to their relation until the husband later discovered she has sold them.
Her strange commercial activity was exposed after she sold the last child for N400,000 and her husband was tipped by a neighbour.
The husband reported to the police and she was arrested and detained at the Command cell.
She was said to have already confessed to the police while efforts were already being made to rescue the children and arrest the buyers.
It was reported that the woman was able to carry out the illegal sales without her husband’s knowledge because the husband, who rented an apartment in Idimu area of Alimosho local government, works outside Lagos, where he stays during the week and returns home weekend or monthly.
It was gathered that the woman told her husband that she took the kids to her relatives to cover her tracks.
Currently the police are carrying out investigations to locate the whereabouts of the children.
