The police in Abia arrested no fewer than seven child-trafficking suspects in the last one month, the Commissioner of Police, Mr Usman Tilli, said in Umuahia on Monday.

Tilli said that the suspects were apprehended between March 4 and April 2 and expressed displeasure over the circumstances under which the suspects committed the crime.

He said that a 26-year-old man in Aba allegedly sold his six months old son for N350,000 to enable him to get a travelling document to Greece.

The commissioner said on March 16 a man from Amaoji in Isiala-Ngwa South Local Government Area of Abia reported that his wife connived with a doctor to sell their baby.

He said that the new born baby boy was sold for N300,000 by the doctor who  allegedly delivered it.

Tilli said that the doctor had been charged to court while three other pregnant women he haboured in his baby factory were used as prosecution witnesses.

He said that a couple were also arrested for selling their new born baby for N200,000 to someone, who  was still at large.

Tilli said the command would stop at nothing to ensure that the state was rid of child- traffickers.
