The police however, threatened to charge him to court for child kidnapping if he failed to produce the missing child, Punch reports.

The CP said, “The police in Akwa Ibom State have rescued a baby boy, David Johnny, who was stolen when he was three-day-old and handed over to a doctor in Port Harcourt. The baby was subsequently taken to Abuja.

“When we found the doctor, he refused to cooperate as he tried to frustrate the efforts of the police in investigating the case of the stolen boy.

“My officers in the trafficking department moved from Uyo to Port Harcourt, Umuahia, and Aba in search of the stolen child.

“It was not until Wednesday, April 22, when the pressure became so much, that the woman who had bought the child, took the child back to the clinic in Port Harcourt, where she bought him, and abandoned him there.”

They were finally able to trace the abducted child following a phone call the doctor received in police custody from the woman who had bought the child.

He said, “The biological mother sold the child through the doctor to the woman for N300,000.”

The baby’s mother who confessed to have sold the baby because she could not take care of three children also disclosed that she got N150,000 from the proceeds of the deal.
