A Cameroonian refugee has reportedly sold her baby for N70k (GHC1062), months after she escaped the crisis in Cameroon to seek asylum in Nigeria at Adagom refugee camp in Cross River state.
The mother of 20 years whose name was given as Claudia agreed to trade her baby after she was approached by a barber at the camp with an offer from an unidentified buyer who was seeking a child to adopt.
“The boy that bought the baby told the barber to find someone to stay with him. So, the boy agreed to help him get someone,” Charles Ojon, leader of the refugees in Adagom camp said. 
“He met the girl and explained things to her. It was when the girl came that they later agreed she will sell the baby to the man.  She followed him to a hotel in town where they stayed till the next morning before he settled her and paid her the money.
“I remember when she came to the camp pregnant, she delivered shortly after she arrived here but has been struggling to survive.”
A report sighted on The Cable disclosed that the sad was uncovered after a heated argument erupted after one Victor insisted on taking the lion share from the N70k after the deal was concluded.
It was learnt that Victor told her she will take N30,000 while he collects N40,000, a suggestion the lady protested against while also pointing out that she is the mother of the child.
The camp coordinator identified as Andy confirmed the incident, adding that the police have already launched an investigation.
