However when our Reporter Interviewed the doctor, the following conversation ensued;
Reporter: you said you didn’t know the children where stolen right? why did they bring them to you specifically and not Police, or motherless babies home?
Doctor: I didn’t know the children where stolen, I thought I was helping a family who couldn’t afford to train their children instated of them dumping them by the road side to help train them. I didn’t know that by doing so I was hurting another family because the children were stolen from another family.
Reporter: You said you are a medical doctor and therefore should know what Illegal adoption means? you spent 7years in the university and should know that when money is exchanged for human beings, it becomes trafficking are you also not aware of what child trafficking is all about?
Doctor: Like I said before the money paid was for assisting them that claims to be their parents to start something and put meals on their table. I didn’t intend it for bad, if not when the police came I would have run away . No but I called them and told them to come that I was having challenges with the children until to enable police to investigate and that was when I knew they were stolen from Benue
