A male child delivered by 18-year-old Aisha Lawal who is known to hang around a brothel in Katsina but allegedly abducted and sold to one Grace Ohuhu for N200,000 has been found in Imo State.
Apart from Aisha and Grace who have been arrested by the police over the incident, three others – Ogugua Okoh, a 43-year-old senior nurse with the Federal Medical Center (FMC) Katsina; her friend, Joy Ihenamere and one Hauwa’u Ibrahim, believed to be Aisha’s godmother who is camping her at the brothel, are also being detained by the police over the case.
In January, Aisha was delivered of a baby boy at the Federal Medical Centre, Katsina, where she was told she had a stillbirth and that the baby had been buried.
She hurriedly packed her things and left the hospital without settling her outstanding bills.
Trouble however started when a fracas ensued between Aisha and her godmother, Hauwa’u which led to the intervention of the Police. Little did they know that a can of worms was about to be opened. Hauwa’u had accused Aisha of doing the unthinkable by selling a child she had out of wedlock.
The accusation led the policemen to probe further. According to the state Commissioner of Police, Abdullahi Usman, Aisha was impregnated by someone she doesn’t know and after delivery, connived with her friend, Hauwa’u and a nurse, Ogugua Okoh, who linked them up to one Joy, to sell the baby for N200,000 to Grace Ohuhu.
“We traced Mrs Grace Ohuhu to far away Imo State where she was apprehended and the baby recovered,” the commissioner said.
Narrating her ordeal, Aisha who admitted she conceived the child out of wedlock, said she was assisted by Nurse Okoh to deliver the baby at the FMC, Katsina. “They told me that the child had died when I demanded for it,” she said.
For Hauwa’u, Aisha was brought to her by someone she could not recollect anymore. She said the nurse helped with the delivery of the baby but that Aisha had been complaining and contemplating what to do with the baby. She alleged that Aisha had planned to dispose off the baby in the refuse bin.
However, Nurse Okoh said the duo approached her when Aisha was seven months pregnant for an abortion which she declined. She pleaded with them to have a rethink as she couldn’t take part in the killing of an innocent baby.
She said it was at this point that “I pleaded with them to let me take care of the child because there’s a woman (Joy) who had always asked me to help get a kid for her sister to adopt.”
Okoh said, Grace, after she was told of the situation, sent the first N50,000 to Aisha to help in buying clothes and for proper up keep of the child. She denied buying the baby, noting that, “I took care of the baby for over one month.”
On her part, Grace Ohuhu who had been married for 18 years without a child, said what they were sending to the nurse was for the up keep and not payment for the child.
The baby, who had been named Victor, has been recovered, while the state commissioner of police said investigation is still ongoing on the matter.
