After killing a woman with poison and selling her newborn twins for N3 million in Enugu, three female child traffickers


Three ladies have been detained by Enugu State Police Command agents on suspicion of conspiring to smuggle newborn twins and killing the babies' mother.

Ukorie Cynthia, Onyia Pauline, and Aroh Ijeoma, the three suspects, were charged in court and held in the Enugu Correctional Custodial Center.

In a statement released on Friday, August 26, DSP Daniel Ndukwe, the command's spokesperson, said the suspects planned to sell the newborn twins for N3m while giving the mother, Chinenye Odoh, N1.8m.

The PPRO claims that Odoh requested the remaining sum after learning that her children had been sold for N3m rather than the N2,350,000.00 she had been informed.

Odoh is said to have died after receiving suspected poisoned grain from the main suspect, Ukorie Cynthia.

The State Criminal Intelligence and Investigation Department of the Enugu State Police Command has today, August 26, 2022, arraigned in court one Ukorie Cynthia, age 25, one Onyia Pauline, age 56, and one Aroh Ijeoma, age 39, all of whom reside in Enugu. This comes after the consolidation and conclusion of investigations into a case of conspiracy, children trafficking, and murder.

The accused, who were detained in Enugu Correctional Custodial Center for further hearing of the case, were apprehended on July 26, 2022, by police officers working out of Central Police Station (CPS) Enugu.

Their arrest followed the receipt of a report alleging that they conspired to sell the newborn twins of one Chinenye Odoh, who was 31 years old, and that they then killed her by poisoning her food after she realised the suspects had given her less money than the total amount they had received from the sale of the babies."

Investigations revealed that Aroh Ijeoma facilitated the sale of the babies by getting in touch with Onyia Pauline, a nurse, who brought a couple that purchased the babies upon their birth at the sum of three million naira (N3,000,000.00). "That contrary to this sum, Ijeoma informed the deceased and mother of the babies, Chinenye, that the children were sold for two million, three hundred and eighty, " according to the investigations.

The deceased was reported to have eaten a supposedly poisoned maize that Cynthia had given to her once she eventually learned the precise price for which they had sold the infants, which is what caused her death."

The PPRO said that the matter has been postponed to 05/10/2022 for a new hearing.
