The police in Lagos have arrested a 60-year-old suspect for allegedly running a baby factory in the Isolo area of the state.
Hakeem Odumosu, the Commissioner of Police in Lagos disclosed this on Wednesday during a parade of suspects at the Police Command, Ikeja.
The suspect, Augustina Onyenwe, was arrested on July 1 at Lawson Road, Isolo, where she allegedly operated a baby factory, the police boss said.
Mr Odumosu said the arrest of the suspect was based on the information received by the police that Mrs Onyenwe keeps young pregnant ladies at the location till they are put to bed.
“A police team acted on the information, raced to the address, and rescued two heavily pregnant girls. The suspect has made a confessional statement to that effect.
“The victims, ladies of ages 32 and 20 respectively, have been kept in protective custody while the suspect will be charged to court as soon as possible,” Mr Odumosu said. (Premium Times)
