Man Tricks Neighbour, Sells Their Six Children

. . . Two Of the Children To Same Buyer

. . . Remanded in Yola Correctional Centre

A Yola magistrates’ court Wednesday, March 2, 2022, remanded a man in a Correctional Centre for allegedly selling six of his neighbours’ children. The accused, Yohanna Saidolo is said to have allegedly sold his neighbours’ six children after taking them away from home on the pretense of enrolling them in a missionary school in the state capital.

Saidolo who resides in Koma village of Jada Local Government Area, was accused of deceiving his neighbours and taking away their children, claiming that he had secured admission for them to study at a missionary school in Yola. He was said to have successfully delivered the children to one Madam Lydia of Rhumde-Baru neighbourhood at the Jambutu satellite town in Yola.

One of the parents, Mr Markus Anthony, said: “Saidolo took their children, six of them in number, promising to enroll them in a missionary school in Yola, but since then they could not set eyes on any of them. We couldn’t hear from our kids and they could not come home for any holiday, not even during Christmas,” Anthony lamented.

Suspecting a foul play, Anthony and five other parents, reported the matter to the police. Upon his arrest, Saidolo confessed to have sold off the children to Madam Lydia but failed to disclose the agreed price when asked. According to him, “I actually delivered eight children to Madam Lydia, among them two of my own children.”
