Six people have been arrested in south-eastern Nigeria for allegedly selling a two-week old baby for N19800 in Cross River state.


Police in Cross River state said those arrested included the baby’s mother, who said extreme poverty forced to sell her child for around N19,800 ($90).

In 2013, 17 pregnant teenage girls and 11 babies were rescued from a house in the south-eastern state of Imo, suspected of planning to sell their babies.

Correspondents (BBC) say the issue of so-called baby factories is still a prevalent problem in the region.
