This led to the arrest of the operator of the ‘baby factory’, whose name was given as Imaobong Asuquo.

The commissioner further noted that Imaobong operated the baby factory in her home and sold a baby for N500,000 in collaboration with another suspect simply identified as Iquo.

“We got credible intelligence and we swung into action immediately in a covert operation at about 4am Wednesday and we busted a baby factory operated in the residence of one Imaobong Asuquo who sells baby’s for at least 500,000 naira.

“We also rescued three pregnant girls including two 19 year old and another 21 year old as well as two children (names withheld)aged 2 and 7 years.

“From the statement we got from one Solomon Christopher husband to one of the rescued pregnant women, we also discovered that three babies were sold for 500,000 naira each already.

“But we are working assiduously to make sure we get to the root of the matter and all involved apprehended and charged to Court to face justice, investigation is still ongoing as we speak,” Jimoh said.
