A 23-year-old pregnant lady, simply identified as Chinaza, has approached doctors at the National Hospital in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, to seek a buyer for her unborn child.
It was gathered that when Chinaza fell pregnant, she left her parents’ house in Imo state to live with her friend in Lagos state.
Her friend’s house was later demolished, and this caused her to be homeless. Both ladies moved to Abuja to stay with their friend’s uncle but were later asked to leave by the landlord of the building. She then decided to visit a hospital to seek a buyer for her unborn child. Punch reports
“A pregnant lady came to the hospital over the weekend and said she wanted to sell her unborn baby. She said she mistakenly got pregnant and left her parents house in Imo State to stay with her friend in Lagos State.
While living with her friend, she said her residence was demolished and they travelled to Abuja to live with her friend’s uncle. She said her 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 has been handed over to the police in FCT. She is still there as I speak.” A source said.
The spokesperson of the FCT police command, Josephine Adeh, who confirmed the incident disclosed that the lady is now in police custody and is being interrogated.
