A Housewife, Eucharia Mba who sold her four-month-old baby for N605,000 has been dragged before Minna Chief Magistrates’ Court in Niger State.

Mr. Mba was earlier apprehended by the police for allegedly selling her four-month-old baby for N605,000.

Mba was arrested alongside Bright Ahuruezeanya of Chanchaga area of Minna and one Peter Ani.

The defendants are facing three counts bordering on criminal conspiracy, buying and selling of a minor.

The offence contravened sections 79 and 278 of the Penal Code Law.

According to police’s Report, one Mr John of Mechanic Junction in Chanchaga had some time in September 2017 reported to the police that Amaka Bright of the same address with Bright Ahuruezeanya conspired with his wife Eucharia and sold his four-month-old baby boy.

It was alleged that Eucharia and the other two accused persons left for Enugu State where they sold the baby to one Mr. Ani for N605,000.

The suspects, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.

In his rule, the presiding chief magistrate, Hassan Mohammed, ordered the remand of the two men involved in the matter and granted bail to the two women on health grounds.

“The court will grant bail to the two accused women because one is eight months pregnant while the other one is nursing a four-month-old baby. It will be unjust to expose them to health hazard and it would be unfair to the innocent four months old baby and the one yet to be born, ” the magistrate said.

The magistrate later granted the two men bail in the sum of N500,000 each with a surety who must be resident within Minna, the Niger state Capital.

“They should also produce two recent passports as well as their national identification card,” the magistrate added.

The case was adjoined till October 18, 2017, for further hearing.
