The woman, said to be barren and was desperate to have a baby came all the way from Abuja, with her husband for the illegal transaction.
According to Kano state Police Command spokesman, DSP Magaji Musa Majia, who paraded the suspects, the child buyers paid the parents of the baby N13, 000, remaining a balance of N2000.
Luck ran out of the childless couple when the parents of the baby alerted the police over the illegal transaction.
Majia said, “a young lady, residing in Sabon Gari, Church Road, reported the incident to the state Anti-Kidnapping unit that a woman approached her, requesting to buy her child for the sum of N15,000.

“Based on the report, we promptly drafted detectives to accompany the woman to the transaction point. While the deal was being struck, a woman, who claimed to be a staff of the renowned ECWA clinic, who happened to be the go-between handed over the sum of N13,000 the mother of the child, promising to balance the sum of N2,000 later.
“The mother of the child, identified as, Fatima, quickly alerted the police officers, who were within the scene, where the woman was consequently arrested.”
Majia added that the go-between woman was allegedly assaulted about a week ago, while attempting to steal the child.

The husband of the suspect, Mr. Bob-manuel Mpaka, however, told journalists that, ‘’I have been married for quite some years, without any child, hence I decided to adopt a child, through legal means.
“We are not kidnappers, we came to Kano with the information that we could adopt a child in the state. We came with our marriage certificate, including other vital documents.
“We were unaware that the woman who facilitated the entire transaction had a hidden agenda.”
The Kano Police spokesman, however, advised parents to be mindful of the whereabouts of their wards and reiterated the Command’s determination to fight kidnapping, child trafficking and other crimes in the ancient commercial city.
