  1. Imagine buying a baby, even if she were buying a dog. Without due process of legal adoption, that child is stolen. Thank God you were caught! Pls return baby to her worried mother.

  2. This is quite unlawful. If found guilty, the culprit should be prosecuted and charged to the court of law.

  3. God please protect our children from this illicit act of selling children here and there in this our country Nigeria. May God have mercy

  4. Wonders shall never end, child sale! They must eradicate this, thank God, it is not those who kill that she sold the girl to..

  5. This is becoming too much this days, there is no other business than to be stealing small children and sell. Probably there should be a law that would specify severed purnishment for anyone caught with such offence

  6. Na whaooo wonders shall never end.so there is no home in her state? The police should handle this matter very seriously.

  7. So they now buy children like they buy goat and chicken? And how did she tell the church that she got a 5Yr old girl? She born the pikin or the pikin fall from heaven?

  8. So she even get mind to dedicate a stolen child. God will be exposing all of u trying to turn Christianity into something else
