She deceived her mother, Hauwa Lawan, by pretending to enroll her brother in a school in Mubi, 40 kilometers away. Instead, she sold him to human trafficker Efunaya Nabufe, who took him to Enugu State.

Blessing used the proceeds to buy a grinding machine and gave her boyfriend N200,000 for their traditional wedding expenses.

Hauwa Lawan expressed disbelief that her daughter could sell her sibling to a stranger.

She recounted how Blessing lied about enrolling her brother in school and how she didn’t hear from him for a year.

The truth emerged when Blessing’s father discovered the child’s whereabouts during her marriage proposal.

He consulted an oracle, and Blessing confessed that the child was alive and living with a woman in Enugu.

The police arrested Blessing and Efunaya Nabufe, and SP Suleiman Nguroje confirmed that they will be charged to court after a thorough investigation.
