A student of the Federal Polytechnic Nekede, Vivian Iwuji who delivered a baby boy on August 2, 2014, had with the assistance of her boyfriend, Obinna Ugochukwu sold the baby for N620,000.

Vivian’s father, Mr Patrick Iwuji told the police that him and his wife were aware that their daughter, Vivian was pregnant.
“She told us that she was going to the hospital to deliver and when we visited her, we asked her about the baby. She told us that the baby was dead.
“I didn’t believe her and there was no trace that my daughter’s baby was dead. I had to report to the police. Later the case was transferred to the Anti-Human Trafficking Unit for investigation.
“It was there that my own daughter with her boyfriend confessed that they sold the baby boy in the sum of N620,000 to one Ehegalara Edwin.”
Earlier in the week at the Police Headquarters, Owerri, Commissioner of Police, Mr Abdulmajid Ali handed over the baby to Mr. Iwuji.
The police boss added that Miss Vivian and her lover would be charged to court soon.
