It is disheartening to know that women who know and understand the rigors of pregnancy and motherhood are also involved in child trafficking.
For this reason, there is a call that parents ensure that their children are not in situations that are vulnerable to kidnap.
Five women were arrested for stealing a three-year-old boy at a funeral and selling him for N600, 000.
Punch reported that the suspects, Chinonye Okere, Joy Ama, Eucheria Amadi, Pauline Uzoamaka, and Nnenne Okere were child traffickers who engaged in stealing children and selling them.
They admitted to the crime but confessed that they had the help of a police officer in carrying out the act.
Nnenne, who stole the child explained that her husband and one other woman was also involved but they took to their heels when they were found out.
The 55-year-old woman who bought the boy said she lived in Lagos but got the boy from a woman in Anambra state.
