Real Reason I Sold My 2 Daughters for N300,000 – Nigerian Housewife


A 35-year-old Nigerian housewife, Blessing Agoro, arrested by men of Ogun State Police Command for allegedly selling her two daughters, has opened up on the reason she took that decision.

According to the Police, Blessing, who pleaded for mercy, disclosed that she sold the two daughters she personally gave birth to – Semilore Agoro (four), and Deborah Agoro (two) – because her husband, Oluwaseyi Agoro, left home.

The suspect was arrested, following a report lodged at Redeemed Camp divisional headquarters by her husband, Oluwaseyi Agoro.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi disclosed this in a statement on Sunday.


Oyeyemi said the husband reported that when he returned from travelling last week Tuesday he couldn’t find his two daughters.

The PPRO said, “The man stated further that all efforts to make his wife tell him the whereabouts of the children proved abortive, hence his report.

“Upon the report, the DPO Redeemed Camp division, CSP Alabi Akinjide, detailed his detectives to apprehend the suspect, who had already been with the camp’s code of conduct department.

“On interrogation, the suspect explained to the police that her husband left home for the past two years, and while he was away, she found it difficult to cater for the two children with her other two children she had for another man.

“She stated further that while she was contemplating on what to do, one Kolawole Imoleayo introduced her to a couple in Port Harcourt who was in need of children. She sold the two daughters to the couple at the rate of three hundred thousand naira (N300,000).
“Her confession led to the arrest of the said intermediary, Kolawole Imoleayo. They are both assisting the police in their investigation.”

The Commissioner of Police, Edward Ajogun, has ordered the transfer of the suspects to the anti-human trafficking and child labour unit of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for discreet investigation.

Oyeyemi added that Ajogun directed that the children must be rescued and brought back to their parents as soon as possible.
