Lagos State Police Command on Sunday made a discovery of a baby factory located at Isherin Osun area of the state, where young girls are impregnated and their babies taken and sold upon delivery.

A total of 19 pregnant girls between 15 and 28 years old as well as four kids were rescued, and also, two older women Happiness Ukwuoma, 40 and Sherifat Ipeya 54, arrested in connection with the case.

The statement added that the pregnant women were brought from Rivers, Cross River, Akwa Ibom, Anambra, Abia and Imo States.

“The suspects did not receive formal medical training but operate as nurses.

The suspects are natives of Imo and Epe, Lagos States respectively.

“The Command has launched a manhunt of the principal suspect Madam Oluchi ,a mother of five from Mbano, Imo State.

The young women were mostly abducted by the suspects for the purpose of getting them pregnant and selling the Babies to potential buyers.

“The girls were tricked with employment as domestic staff in Lagos. The Babies are sold between N300,000 and N500,000 depending on the sex.
Boys are sold for N500,000 and girls for N300,000.”

Vanguard reports that the ladies movements were restricted and that whenever any of them got pregnant, the suspects who posed as nurses, would monitor them until delivery.

One of the rescued ladies from Akwa-Ibom state, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, narrated how she got herself in the mess:

“ My friend who left Uyo last year, called me to say that someone was looking for house help. I borrowed money to come to Lagos.

One woman came to pick me at the park and brought me here. The next day, I was summoned by our madam, who told me that I would not leave the premises until next year.

Being a newcomer, my customers only came at night to have sex with me. So far, I have slept with seven different men before I discovered I was pregnant.

I was told that after delivery, I would be paid handsomely and that if I decided to leave after then, I could. My pregnancy is in its second trimester”.

Asked why she did not contact her relative when she noticed she was forced into prostitution, she replied,

“ My telephone was collected from me and given a non-android phone”

The Lagos State Police Command boss, CP Zubairu Muazu, as gathered, visited the scene and ordered the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, SCIID Yaba to take over the case.

Meanwhile, the command, according to Bala, “is working with other agencies and stakeholders in rehabilitating and resettling the pregnant girls and the babies. The investigation is ongoing, at the end of which the suspects will face the law.
