British Couple Conned Into Believing Nigerian Baby Was Their Own: Herbal Remedies Convinced 'Mother' She Was Pregnant

A British couple ‘fell under the spell’ of Nigerian fraudsters who gave the woman herbal remedies and tricked her into thinking she had given birth, the High Court heard. The court was told how the husband and wife still cannot accept the baby girl they brought home from Nigeria two years ago is not their own – despite DNA tests proving they are not the natural parents. Social workers arrested the couple after they returned to the UK, accusing them of being knowing parties in the fraud.
