A man has been arrested after trying to sell his three-year-old child wrapped in a rice bag.
According to Donnie Inuikim Sharon, a Facebook user who shared the photos, the man who’s yet to be identified as of the time of filing this report, blamed the devil, revealing that he was only trying to feed his other children from the gains he would have made if he wasn’t caught.
The father of eight was arrested while attempting to sell his son wrapped in a rice bag to a buyer who informed the police.
Cases of selling of children for illegal adoption and trafficking have become a growing concern in Nigeria for some time now.
The suspect has been charged with child trafficking.
