A 35-year-old mother, Blessing Ebuneku Agoro, is in police net for selling her two biological daughters – Semilore Agoro (4 years) and Deborah Agoro (2 years) for N300,000 in Ogun State.

The woman was said to have sold the children without the knowledge of her husband, Oluwaseyi Agoro, who reported the matter to the police.

The State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Abimbola Oyeyemi, told DAILY POST on Sunday that the husband reported at the Redeemed Camp Divisional Headquarters that he travelled for some time and returned on Tuesday without seeing his two daughters.

“Upon the report, the DPO of the Redeemed Camp Division, CSP Alabi Akinjide, detailed his detectives to apprehend the suspect, who was already with the camp’s code of conduct department.

“On interrogation, the suspect explained to the police that her husband left home for the past two years and while he was away, she found it difficult to cater for the two children, with her other two children she had for another man,” it said.

“She sold the two daughters to the couple at the rate of 300,000,” Oyeyemi said.

The police image maker added that her confession led to the arrest of the said Imoleayo; “they were both assisting the police in the investigation,” the PPRO confirmed.
