The Amotekun Corps in Ogun has arrested 30-year-old Daniel Chigozie for child trafficking.
Chigozie who is a resident of Abela in Sango Ota, Ado-Odo/Ota local government Area of Ogun was arrested for allegedly selling his nine-month-old son to three different buyers.
Commandant of the Amotekun Corps in Ogun State, David Akinremi, said the security agency got intelligence that the father had serially traded his son, Daniel Chinonye Darlington.
Aminremi revealed that he sold the boy to three different buyers at different locations in the Sango, Meiran and Apapa areas of Lagos.
The man, it was gathered, was paid N150,000, N400,000 and N700,000 respectively from unknown buyers between August 2022 and February 2023.
Akinremi said an investigation conducted by the corps revealed that the man, who is suspected to be working with a criminal syndicate, had devised a means through which the son was retrieved from each of the buyers after each sale until he sold him to the last buyer, one Dr Nosa in Apapa.
The suspect, in his statement, confessed to the crime and is being profiled by the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Humans for a follow-up investigation to recover the child and for prosecution.
