The Police in Katsina state have arrested a 30-year-old woman, Salima Lawal, for allegedly attempting to sell her twin babies. Lawal was said to have approached a man in the Faskari Local Council of the state and bargained to sell the babies for N350, 000.
Speaking to Journalists in Katsina yesterday, Besen Gwana, the commissioner of police said after the negotiation, the buyer told Lawal that he wanted to go and bring the money. He had instead reported to the police who arrested her.
Gwana urged people to continue to assist police with information that would assist in curbing criminal acts in the state. He said the woman would be charged to court.
