And just after their conversation, Chisale says, the police arrested the suspect and he has been charged with a case of selling a child which is an offence under Childcare Protection and Justice Act 2010.

“Upon interview, the suspect said he wanted to sell his blood brother because he has a lot of problems which he wanted to solve and said he managed to bring the victim by asking him to escort him to the Trading Centre,” says Chisale.

Meanwhile the victim has been surrendered to his parents and the suspect is expected to appear before court soon.
