According to reports, the man is a resident of Abela in Sango Ota, Ado-Odo/Ota Local Government Area of Ogun State.

Disclosing this in a statement, the state Commandant of the Amotekun Corps, David Akinremi, said the security agency got intelligence that the father had serially traded his son, Daniel Chinonye Darlington, selling the little boy to three different buyers at different locations in Sango, Meiran and Apapa area of Lagos.

He said the man was paid N150,000, N400,000 and N700,000 respectively from unknown buyers between August 2022 and February 2023.
