Anambra State Government through the Ministry of Women and Social Welfare has arrested a couple and one other for suspected human trafficking in Ifitedunu, Dunukofia Local Government Area of the state.

The feat was achieved when the community Chairman, Mr Arinzechukwu Azodo, notified the Women Affairs Commissioner, Hon. Ify Obinabo.

The media aide to the Women Affairs Commissioner, Chidinma Ikeanyionwu, who disclosed this in a statement on Tuesday, June 18, 2024, said the couple, Temple and Ndubuisi Nwankwo were arrested alongside one Ebere while attempting to sell their baby daughter for N1m.

The couple is suspected to have sold their other children who they claimed have died.

“According to Mr. Azodo, he was alerted by the commander of his team over a report of suspected trafficking taking place in the community which he quickly informed the commissioner who told him to go ahead and apprehend the persons involved,” the statement read.

“Azodo explained that after the arrest, they discovered that the said suspects were about sealing their deal to the tune of one million naira.

“On her part, one of the suspects who gave her name as Ebere from Ukpo in same local government area of the state, revealed that it was another of the suspect by name Temple Nwankwo, her very good friend that approached her one day informing her that she has twin baby for sale although she has already sold one of the twins.

“Ebere said she accepted to partner with her and went further to link her up to a prospective buyer who needed a male child urgently.

“Ebere in her confession said that after their negotiation, they agreed to meet at Oye Agu to further seal the transaction but instead Temple requested an instant payment of one million naira in her account which the buyer objected to because he hadn’t seen the baby in question.

“This brought disagreement among them before Temple changed her mind and left them.
