Following the arrest of Chinyere Chukwu two weeks ago for attempting to sell two of her sons for N1.8 million, the Ozubulu community in Ekwusigo Local Government Area of Anambra State has disowned her.

Chukwu, a mother of 11 children, was apprehended alongside her 17-year-old daughter, Joy Chukwu, whom she conspired with to execute the sale.

After receiving information about Chukwu’s disposition to sell her children, Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Welfare, Ify Obinabo, pretended to be a buyer for the children which led to the arrest.

During the interrogation, Chinyere Chukwu explained that she is from Ozubulu and her husband had passed away after they had two children. She claimed to have given birth to subsequent children with other men and intended to sell two of them to support the others.

A delegation from Ozubulu, led by Chief Chris Ononuju and Lady Ndupu Clara, visited the office of the Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Welfare to assert that the woman was not from their community.

Chief Ononuju clarified, “We have conducted thorough investigations and all evidence indicates she is not from Ozubulu. She is not an indigene or married into the community.”

He further added, “We are appalled by this attempt to tarnish the reputation of our community. She is a stranger to us, and she is well aware that the children do not belong to the man she is claiming.”

He mentioned that the delegation visited the commissioner’s office to dispel the false perceptions created by the culprit.
