A 2-year-old daughter of a widow identified as Diamond Miracle was allegedly stolen by a neighbour in Udu Local Government Area of Delta State and sold to a woman in Port Harcourt, Rivers State for N500,000.
Human rights activist, Comrade Israel Joe, who disclosed this in a Facebook post on Sunday February 12, said the suspect was paid N50,000 and she handed the child to another person who then sold her to the Rivers woman.
?Diamond Miracle (2 years old) was stolen from Ekete, Udu on Thursday 9th February, 2023. If this child is not found, the widowed mother might lose her own life as everything now depends on her children after she lost her husband and father of her children,” the activist said.
“The 25 years old girl who carried Miracle to a Nanny has confessed that Miracle was sold for 500k to a woman who came from Port Harcourt, Rivers State,?
“The Police in Ovwian Aladja led by the DPO CSP Shaba had been doing a lot in assisting us with investigations and we urge him to do more, as tracking the woman who bought the baby would be highly appreciated.
“We gathered that 50k was paid to the neighbour who stole the child and another 50k was paid to the lady who handled the child to the Port Harcourt woman. These monies were seen in their accounts as they confessed to the crime.
?Speaking with the DPO this evening has arouse our hopes that Miracle would be rescued alive from the hands of ritualists going around stealing and buying children this electioneering period. Pls watch your children especially before the conduct of 2023 general elections and may God help us… Amen.?
