By Emma Una

CALABAR— A 26-year-old lady, Gift Etim Ikono, and her two sisters,
 Esther Etim Ikono and Florence Victor Ikono, are currently in police 
custody in Calabar, Cross River State, for allegedly selling their 
babies to yet-to-be identified persons.

The Akwa Ibom State-born suspect, Gift, who resides at 8th Mile, 
Calabar, was arrested on June 28 for allegedly selling two children 
belonging to Esther and Florence, her sisters.

It was gathered that Gift harboured Esther and Florence in 
her apartment while they were pregnant, and sold their babies at birth.

According to Mr. Jimoh Obeh, Cross River State Commissioner 
of Police, “the two girls got pregnant and when they gave birth,
 the babies were sold out by the suspect (Gift) to unknown buyers.”

The principal suspect, along with her sisters, according to the Police 
Commissioner, would soon appear in court after investigations are completed.
