Today in court, one Mr. Chukwuemeka Uboh was arraigned for attempted felony (child trafficking).  He, the Defendant is a divorcee with the custody of a child that is less than 3 years old and two other children. He was a mason, but developed an eye problem and could not continue with the work as he now has difficulties during measurements. He started learning to clean dead bodies in a mortuary so as to stop working as a mason. He was however told that he cannot continue coming with the child, since it is not conducive for a child to be around a mortuary.

Not having the fund to engage a nanny and being a single father, he approached a Babies' Home to beg them to take custody of the child during work hours. The manager of the Home suspected he stole the child and alerted the police to investigate it. She did not want to assist without confirming that the baby was not stolen.

The police made investigations and confirmed that the baby indeed belongs to the Defendant (Mr. Chukwuemeka) and that he carters for the baby and his other children alone.

 Instead of discharging the man, they arrested him and caused him to bail himself with a sum friends and relatives raised for him. They further arraigned him for attempted felony (child trafficking), since he probably could not afford to settle them to close the case.

In court, Mrs. Nkiruka who was the complainant out of compassion, pleaded with the court to release the Defendant. She said the only reason she alerted the police was because she suspected the child was stolen, but that the Police have confirmed the child is his.  Mrs. Nkiruka's the Babies’ home kept custody of the child since October 3, when the father was arrested. She has also been doing all she can to assist the father who is a struggling single father. When I saw all this and spoke with the Defendant, I saw the need to support these two.

I found that the Defendant is a hard working and devote father who regardless of being poor, plays the role of a mother and a father. He is presently out of job, due to blindness on one of his eyes. But he desperately does not want anyone to take away his child from him. He has told me the pathetic story about his separation with his wife, but I don’t think it is necessary to include it here. The Babies’ Home on the other hand seems to me to be doing a good job and the manager is such a passionate woman. But the Home is poorly funded.

This is why I appeal to anybody who has the means to help to please contact them through donations or other means. The Defendant needs a job or at least some funds/food to feed his family with, until he finds a job. The Babies’ home needs funds or at least provisions, such as food or cloths. The manager told me the age range of kids in their home is 12 years and below.

Please find their contacts and the address of the Babies Home below so as to contact them directly and see how you may be of help.
