Woman docked for trying to sell 2-month-old twins for N350,000

The Police command in Katsina State on Wednesday arrested one Salima Lawal for allegedly attempting to sell her two month twin baby girls.

Lawal, 30, hails from Marabar-Kankara, Malumfashi Local Government Area of the state.

The Commissioner of Police, Besen Gwana, disclosed this to journalists in Katsina.

Gwana said the woman had approached a person (name withheld) in Faskari Local Government Area of the state and negotiated to sell the twins to him at the cost of N350,000.

“After negotiations to buy the twin at the price, the person went to bring the money.

“Instead of him to bring the money to her, he reported the case to the police.

The commissioner, however, urged people to continue to assist the police with information that would assist in curbing criminal acts in the state.

The suspect told newsmen that she committed the act without the consent of the father of the twins.
