The fear of bride price settlement has driven a man to sell his girl friend’s baby for N100.000.
Small Talks was informed that when the woman gave birth in Oyigbo, her boyfriend and the nurse who delivered her of the baby girl decided to sell it.
When the woman, asked of her baby, she was told that the baby died after being delivered.
Worried by the development, she threatened a show down with the nurse should she fail to produce her baby
Afraid of losing her job as a registered nurse, the nurse told her that her boyfriend instructed her to sell the baby.
When police was invited into the matter, the nurse told them that a cloth dealer from Warri in Delta State took the baby in place of her N150,000.00.
On his part, the woman’s lover, claimed that he was afraid to pay the bride price of his lover, claiming that her parents would come for it (pride price) since she has put to bed.
The baby has since been returned to her mother in Oyigbo.
