A Cameroonian refugee simply identified as Claudia, 20, has allegedly sold her nine-month-old baby for N70,000.
Claudia lives at the Adagom refugee camp in Cross River State and had sold her baby on August 25 to a stranger, who had visited from Calabar.
She claimed she sold her child because of hunger.
It was reported that Claudia had sold her baby in connivance with a barber simply identified as Victor.
One of the refugees at the camp said, “When the police came, (Claudia) said she sold the child because of hardship; that there is no food or anything to feed the child.
“That was just before they paid us for July. Then, everywhere was dry. A lot of us have been selling our things and using them to settle debt.”
