The trending gist as couple sells daughter for N400,000

A couple, George-Sunday Udoh and Victoria George-Sunday, have been arrested by the Cross River State Police Command for allegedly putting up their six-year-old daughter, Favour Udoh, for sale at the cost of N400,000.

 Southern City News learnt that the couple decided to sell the child in order to raise money to rent their own apartment in Ikom, headquarters of Ikom Local Government Area of the state.



It is reported while parading the couple alongside 28 other suspected criminals to journalists in Calabar, the state Commissioner of Police, Mr Hafiz Inuwa, said that the couple was arrested in Ikom on April 26 following a tip-off.

A top police source said the couple had confessed to the crime, adding that the deal was foiled by a decoy policeman.

He said, “From their confession, the wife had given birth to Favour for another man before getting married to Udoh. But the couple took her as
their daughter. They have two other children together. They have been living with the man’s sister but they are not comfortable in the house because of insults.

“So, they agreed as couple to sell the girl and use the money to get accommodation. They actually placed her for sale at N1.5m. A police went to pose as the buyer and they agreed for N400, 000. They were even telling the decoy policeman that the girl was old enough to do house chores.”

The commissioner of police, however, said that the couple sold the child out of poverty.
