“All attempts to know where the baby is have proved futile.

“On the basis of his complaint, the DPO Mowe Division, SP Folake Afeniforo, has sent detectives to the scene where the suspect was arrested and taken to the station.

“During interrogation, Mary Olatayo confessed to police that she sold the baby to someone in Anambra state for six hundred thousand naira.

“She confessed that it was her friend Chioma Esther Ogbonna who led her to the buyer in Anambra state and that they both split the money equally.

“Her confession led to the arrest of Chioma Esther Ogbonna, who also confirmed Mary’s claims.

“Further investigation revealed that Mary Olatayo, a resident of Omuaran in Kwara State, is a call girl who sees the baby as a disruption to her business and so she decided to dispose of the baby.

“Luckily for her, she has an accomplice in Chioma, a resident of Imo State who quickly contacted the buyer in Anambra State.”
