She added that the previous child she bought cost her total sum of N1.1 million.
Narrating how she was arrested, Mrs. Roseline said she was nabbed with a baby she bought N1 million which she also planned to handover to the buyers at N1.1 million Naira.

When asked who she planned to pay the money to, she pointed at another woman in the group named Chi Chi. Chi Chi was asked who she planned to get the baby from and she pointed to another woman named Aunty Ify. She said Aunty Ify approached her that she had a baby for sale at 950,000 Naira so, she topped her gain of 50,000 Naira and sold to Mrs Nwokocha at 1 million Naira.
She said once Mrs Nwokocha’s money is handed to her, she will hand Aunty Ify’s share to her and Ify will then bring the baby.
Aunty Ify was asked where she got the baby she wanted to sell from and she said she has no idea. She said someone called her that they had a baby to sell so she set the wheels in motion.
Mrs Roseline Nwokocha was asked what happened to the baby she bought two weeks ago and she said the baby is in Aba with a couple. She was asked for the couple’s name but she couldn’t provide an answer.
