A Chinese expatriate working in Nigeria has reportedly deserted a Nigerian woman and their distinctively featured baby in Shagamu, Ogun State. This unsettling incident came to light through a circulating video on social media platforms.
Initially, the Chinese man, whose identity remains undisclosed, and the young Nigerian woman were involved in a romantic relationship that seemed harmonious. However, as the man prepared to return to China, their story took a heartbreaking turn.
The unidentified mother gave birth to a child whose physical features strongly resembled the Chinese father. In a video attributed to @KoikiMedia, which gained considerable online attention, it was revealed that the Chinese man insisted the mother should sell their child to him before departing for China.
Resolutely, the mother refused to part with her child and rejected the proposal to exchange the baby for money. Consequently, due to this dispute, the man allegedly made the painful choice to abandon both the mother and child, leaving them stranded in Shagamu.
In the video footage, the mother is shown in a public setting, cradling her distinctive-looking baby, highlighting the challenging situation they now face.
The video caption explained, “This young lady was impregnated by a Chinese expatriate somewhere along Sagamu Abeokuta expressway. The affair was blissful until it was time for him to return to his country; he then demanded that she ‘sell’ the baby to him, or else he wouldn’t fend for it. She declined to sell the baby, and he has decided to cut off mother and child.”
@MoSuo777 remarked: “Nigerian girls need to exercise caution and not get overly excited when they encounter Asians and white men.”
@NkyEzenwa questioned: “Has she reported this to the police? If she did, why was he permitted to leave the country?”
