The Police Command in Ebonyi State on Monday, arrested a 32-year-old woman for trying to sell her four months old baby.

The lady identified as Victoria Chekwube according to investigation was a s#x worker which led to the pregnancy and due to hardship, wants to sell her baby.

According to eyewitness who pleaded anonymity said Victoria became homeless after the market was demolished and since then have been begging arms.

It was gathered that Victoria was residing at the demolished market along Ogbee Hausa axis, in Abakaliki metropolis where she was impregnated by a yet-to-be-identified man.

Victoria said, “My name is Chekwube Victoria. I am 32 years old. I’m from Ebonyi State. I am a sex worker. I used to stay at Ogbe Hausa in Abakaliki here.

“One of my customers, who paid me N5,000.00, slept with me without condom and after that day, I missed my period. So, this is why I came to be in this condition. I am suffering and I’m even finding it hard to eat.

“This child, four-month-old Victus Chekwube, is my child. But I want to sell my child, because I cannot take care of him. I want to sell it for N40,000.00. I can’t guarantee the child’s safety, because I am suffering and I want to go look for my future.”

Confirming the report, the Police Public Relations Officer of the command, Mrs Loveth Odah, described Chekwube’s situation as being pathetic.

According to Odah, “This lady here, whose name is Victoria Chekwube, told us (the police) that she is a commercial sex worker. She said she doesn’t want to keep this baby (four-month-old Victus Chekwube), she is carrying

“She told us that she is looking for anybody who can pay her N40,000.00 and then take the baby. She said she wants to open a beer parlour business, where she can earn a living from.

“She said she can not exactly say the particular customer that put her in the family way. She only told us that there was a particular day, that many customers were coming and she was charging them N1,500.00 with condom, and N5,000.00 without condom. And that after that day, she missed her period.

“All this while, we have been talking to her not to do something like this; but she is not willing to listen to us. We have tried talking to her to know the value of her own baby and the pride of womanhood. She refused.

“She even told us that the safety of the baby is not guaranteed of we allow her go home now, with the baby. Victoria told us that she would throw the baby away and then face her future.

“The Command has decided to take her to the Ebonyi State Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development. We are sure they should understand how best to handle this kind of situation,” she noted.
