I haven't been paid for selling infant's placenta to Islamic cleric– Suspect
A nursing attendant, Fatima Suleiman, who supposedly sold child’s placenta for N20,000 to an Islamic cleric, Salaudeen Ibrahim, on Thursday said she had not been paid for the transaction before she was arrested. In a meeting with journalists in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital, the nursing attendant, who worked at capstone Hospital, Taiwo Road, Ilorin, said the Islamic cleric approached her to get the placenta for him. Suleiman and Ibrahim were paraded by the Kwara State Police . The nursing attendant said that she was a friend to Ibrahim’s wife and that the Islamic cleric requested to get the placenta about two months ago. “The Islamic cleric requested that I get it (placenta). I succeeded in getting one simply a week ago. It’s my first time of taking part in it. He has not given me any cash yet; neither did he guarantee me a specific amount of cash. He didn’t disclose to me what he needed to use it for,” she expressed. On his part, Ibrahim admitted that he needed to use the placenta for a money ritual, adding that he acquired the ritual practice from anonymous people. The police official said the nursing attendant and the Islamic cleric were captured for conspiracy to submit the offense of purchasing and selling/trafficking in human parts, and for being in possession of human parts.
