Monday and Adagbo
This is a story of a retired military nurse, Samuel Adagbo who has his lost humanity. It all unfolded after operatives of the Inspector-General of Police Intelligence Response Team arrested him.
Adagbo, 73, was arrested alongside his accomplices, Faith Desmond, Sunday Chinedu, 33 and Joy Monday 23.
While Monday was said to have sold her baby to Adagbo, Chinedu reportedly facilitated the transactions of three children, two of whom the grandfather sold to the politician identified only as Francis.
Punch reports that that Adagbo, who lives in Biri community, Delta State, also operated an unregistered mortuary where four bodies were recovered by the police.
Who is Samuel Adagbo?
Adagbo said: “I was enlisted into the Nigerian Army in 1968 during the civil war and I retired in May 1982. I was with the Nigerian Army Module Nurse School. In 1984, I registered my maternity home under the then Bendel State Ministry of Health. I was operating a clinic and maternity, and I also have a mortuary where I keep dead bodies within the community. The mortuary was not registered but I didn’t know that it was illegal to operate a mortuary without proper registration.”
How the babies were traded
Narrating how he traded on babies, Adagbo said: “About three years ago, one Favour brought Joy (Monday) to my house and she told me she was six months pregnant. She gave birth to a male child who died some hours after birth. Her second child is a female child sold to a woman whose whereabouts I don’t know now.”
According to Adagbo, one Friday introduced Francis to him and he sold two newborns to the politician for N450, 000.
“I collected N300,000 for the first baby from Mr Francis and the mother took N150, 000 and gave me the remaining amount. I gave Friday who brought the deal N50, 000 while I took N100, 000.
“That same day, Mr Francis bought another six month-old-baby from me for N150,000 and I gave the mother of the baby N50,000 while I took N100,000,” he added.
The police said they were on the trail of the politician and Friday.
A double-barrelled gun was also said to have been recovered from Adagbo but Adagbo insists the gun was licenced at the Delta State Police Command.
He said, “I bought the gun for N235,000 at Onitsha Market (Anambra State) and I took it to the Delta State Police Command for registration. It was registered by a police officer called Collins. He was attached to the armoury.
“I was ignorant of all the crimes I committed, and I want the police to be merciful. I want God to forgive my sins.”
