Grandmother Traffics 6 Week Old Grand daughter, Uses Money to Rent Single Room.
This Picture show is: Rita Amaglo, Mother of the child.
The search for a better life for a daughter has led a woman to traffic her 6 week old grand daughter so she can gather enough money to better the life of her daughter who lives in abject poverty.
Comfort Okine hatched the plan to traffic the daughter of Rita Amaglo, 29, after being told by friends that a nurse at a hospital in Kasoa can help her achieve her aim.
The entire plan was hatched when the 29 year old plantain chips seller was pregnant with her sixth child; four of whom she had with three different men.
“We will use the money to better our lives, particularly yours. I will rent a room for you and furnish it with flat screen and all other things you may need…,” Madam Okine assured the daughter whose husband, Patrick has traveled back to Sefwi in search of greener pastures.
When consulted, the bearded Patrick rejected the bid for the unborn child outright but could not make it in time to stop the mother in law from prosecuting her agenda due to the lockdown in Accra as part of efforts to curtail the spread of the COVID-19 disease.
The constant rejection of the idea did not however stop Madam Okine from carrying out her agenda weeks after the baby girl was delivered at home.
She kept constant touch with the mother performing all the duties of a traditional grandmother in the home of the new mother in Anyaa in the Ga Central District of the Greater Accra Region.
