Luck ran out on George Maduabuchi when the wife alerted the police when the baby fell ill and he took him out and did not return with him. Maduabuchi however said that he did not sell his son, but only took him to a herbalist when
he took ill.
He said: “The herbalist gave me money and told me that he could not heal the baby. I therefore left the baby in the herbalist’s home.His wife, Eberechi, who is also pregnant, said he took their son, who had a cough to the said herbalist, but instead of returning with the baby, rather came back with bundles of money.
She then raised an alarm which attracted neighbours who helped to arrest the husband. He later led the police to the herbalist’s house where the boy was recovered….. like a lost MTN sim card….
