A DESPERATE mum who sold her six-week-old baby bust herself after confessing all to her pastor.

According to Punch, Miracle Johnson (23) from Anambra, southern Nigeria sold her infant, Greatness, to an orphanage for N200 000 (about R8 110) two weeks ago.

Part of the cash Miracle used to buy a cellphone.

She explained she had sold her child because her husband was struggling to support her and their first born child.

Miracle said a woman called Mama Joy had persuaded her to sell Greatness.

“Mama Joy said that since my husband was not taking care of me, if I did sell the baby I could give the money to my husband to start a business or buy a motorcycle,” said Miracle.

Soon afterwards she was overcome with guilt and remorse and told her pastor what she had done.

She said: “I told my pastor what I had done and that it was a mistake for which I would never forgive myself. So, my husband and I went to a police station to report it.

“I know what I did was not good. I pray that my child will forgive me.”

Cops said she’ll be charged soon in court.
