Another edition of the popular Confessions programme aired on TV3 brought out a gripping tale shared by a Ghanaian man on how he sold his daughter at the blind side of his wife.
He apparently sold their daughter for $500,000 USD in the form of adoption to someone living in the US after he initially told her that the girl was going to live with his brother there.
The fact that his wife has threatened to locate their daughter after not hearing from her for years has started giving him problems.
He told the host of the programme Nancy saying, “I have been married for some years, and we have two children. A year ago, I told my wife that my brother in the States is preparing documents to take one of our daughters abroad because it’s not been good for us for some time. We were facing difficulties and all that.
The unidentified man went on to say that he lied to his wife because strangers, not his brother, would be receiving the child.
“I didn’t tell her the actual thing. What happened was that I sent our daughter away, and she’s never coming back. I signed off the adoption papers.”
“There’s a man and his wife in the States who are finding it difficult to give birth. Somebody linked me to them. They told me they have half a million dollars in exchange for a child. This money could change my life and my wife’s life. Things were so difficult. And from where I am coming from, and my wife is coming from, there’s no help,” he confessed to Ms Nancy.
