NIGERIA – 42-year-old Ayuba John, has been arrested by men of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in Nasarawa state for attempting to sell his three-year-old son for N5 million.

Parading him before newsmen, Commandant of NSCDC in the state, Mahmud Fari , said Ayuba, who is from Obi Local Government area of Nasararwa state, is not a first time offender as he has been arrested in the past for selling his daughter to someone in Owerri. According to Fari, Ayuba sold his children out for ritual purposes.

“I was moved to tears when I learnt that a biological father took his son to the market to sell him at the sum of N5million. When he was asked why he want to sell his son, he said he wants to increase his financial status. We also learnt that this is not his first child to be sold out. He sold his daughter earlier on to somebody in Owerri, and he is selling them out for rituals,” Fari said

When interrogated, Ayuba who is married to four wives with 23 children, said he resorted to selling off his children because he needed money to settle some personal issues.
