Man Caught While Trying to Sell His 4-year-old Son Wrapped inside a Bag.
Just recently a man was caught with a sack of bag containing his 4-year-old son he intends to sell.
According to reports, the man has 8 children in total and he decided to sell one of them to an unknown buyer to raise money to feed the others.
For safety and security purposes and to avoid stigmatization, the boy’s name and face have been canceled.
No doubt the level of hardship and difficulty in Nigeria is alarming, but that does not mean that parents should now result to selling their children to feed.
Child trafficking is a serious offense and the law will not accept the fact that hardship caused it.
The man is in police custody while an investigation is ongoing to ascertain the condition that warrants his action and the possible arrest of his accomplice.
