Mother of 11 Arrested For Attempting To Sell Grandsons In Anambra

Chinyere Chukwu, 38, was taken into custody by officials of the Anambra State Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Welfare after she tried to sell two of her grandsons.

The mother of eleven was taken into custody along with her 17-year-old daughter, Joy Chukwu, who is the boy’s mother.

The suspects blamed the country’s continuous financial hardship for their conduct, according to a press release from the commissioner’s media assistant, Chidinma Ikeanyionwu.
