A pregnant lady, identified only as Chinaza, approached doctors at the National Hospital in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, to seek buyer for her unborn baby.
It was gathered that when the 23-year-old lady got pregnant, she left her parents house in Imo State to live with her friend in Lagos State.
A source in the hospital, who spoke with our correspondent on Monday, said Chinaza friend’s house was later demolished, forcing them to relocate to Abuja to live with her friend’s uncle.
She added that the uncle’s landlady complained about the number of persons occupying the apartment, and they were later asked to leave.
While wandering around, she said she requested help from a woman she met in Utako, Abuja, and the woman gave her N500.
She said the woman told her to come to the hospital to say whatever was on her mind. She came to the hospital over the weekend and said she wanted to sell her unborn baby.
The lady was then handed over to the police in FCT for further investigation.
Although the state Police Public Relations Officer, Josephine Adeh confirmed the lady is in their custody, they are yet to provide details on their investigation
