The Special Armed Robbery Squad (SARS) of the Anambra State Police Command, arrested 20-year-old Chinaza Onwuasoanya for allegedly selling 20 stolen babies.
She was impregnated by her boyfriend in Lagos and returned to Anambra State in October, 2013, to have the baby but was too ashamed to go back home to her parents.
A friend then introduced her to 45-year-old Goodness, who runs an orphanage, which the police allegedly said was a cover for a baby-trafficking operation.
She handed over the baby in exchange for the sum of N150,000 after giving birth to the baby girl.
The money she made opened her eyes to the possibility of earning more from the same source.
She confessed to being a member of the gang of robbers who killed two policemen, Inspector Shuaibu Usman and Sergeant Julius Matthew, of Police Mobile Force 29 in February, 2017 at Nkpor fly-over, Onitsha and took their AK-47 rifles, which were later used to commit robberies as she assisted the SARS operatives to arrest three members of the gang; Ifeanyi Onwukwe a.k.a Nger, Chidubem Osita a.k.a Kabaka, and Chijioke Obi a.k.a Abababa, while the other six members escaped.
