I Sold Children From My ‘Baby Factory’ For N1.4million Or More Depending On– Woman Confesses
A woman who was arrested for allegedly running a baby factory in Akudo Azoroh area of Rivers State, has said that she sold the children made from the factory between N1.4 and N1.5million, depending on the gender.
Operatives of the Nigerian police in Rivers State had busted a suspected baby making factory and rescued six pregnant girls.
The police said the arrest was made around Choba community in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of the state.
The new state Commissioner of Police, Polycarp Emeka, made the disclosure during his maiden media briefing in Port Harcourt, on Wednesday.
The suspect admitted running the illegal business but claimed that she gave out the babies to families who did not have children of their own, and not to ritualists.
Mrs. Azoroh while speaking with the police said she had given out six children in the past, noting that she started the business three years ago.
She also explained that the young women were already pregnant when they came to her, adding that she paid off the girls as much as N800,000 to N900,00 depending on the stage of the pregnancy at the time they came and the gender of the child they delivered.
“I have given out six children in the past, I started the business three years ago. I do not have boys who get the girls pregnant, they were already pregnant when they came; they came to me on their own.
“I give out the babies only to families who do not have children and not to ritualists; I give them out for between N1.4 and N1.5 million, depending on the sex of the baby, while I pay their mothers off depending on the stage of the pregnancy at the time they came,” she added.
