The men of the Amotekun in Ondo West Local Government area of Ondo State have arrested a 22-year-old woman, Seun Oladayo for selling her day old baby N10,000 to a Pastor.
The woman said she sold the baby because she could not cater for her.
Oladayo, who hails from Abejoye in Ondo city said it has been extremely difficult for her since the father left her the day he was told that she was pregnant.
“I asked the pastor to take the baby away and bring N10, 000 because I dont ‘t know how I am going to take care of the baby”, she confessed .
The pastor, Olawale popularly called Eri Aditu said the baby was given to him in a sack with the placenta by the woman who was desperate to sell her baby.
He said, “I was told to bring N10,000, so that they can give the doctor N5, 000 for his job and I did because if I did not, another person would come and buy the baby”
He said he went immediately to Amotekun’s office to explain what happened and the woman was arrested.
“I went to the Amotekun to report the woman and she was handed over to Police at Area Commander Yaba in Ondo”.
