THE National Agency for the Prohibition of Traffic in Persons and Other Related Matters, NAPTIP, officials in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, are currently in the custody of a two weeks old baby reportedly rescued from a Cameroonian couple, Mr. Kamsol Ayang, 44, and wife, Theresa Asamoa, 46, in Calabar, Cross River States.

Officials of the Nigeria Immigration Services intercepted the couple with the two-week-old baby at the Nfum control post in Etung Local Government Area in Cross River State.

Cross River State’s Comptroller of the Immigration Service, Mrs. Funke Adeuyi, made the disclosure while fielding questions from newsmen shortly after parading the suspects at the Immigration Office in Calabar.

Adeuyi said: “The baby looked so weak and pale, as if he had not tasted breast milk. Neither the baby’s eyes nor body was moving, a situation that sparked suspicion. The couple claimed to have been married for 15 years, and decided to leave Cameroon for Nigeria to take herbal drugs that would make her pregnant.”
