Kudos to Nigerian Police their diligent work: The Rivers State Police Command on yesterday [July 8] paraded three pregnant women and a 36-year-old man suspected to be involved in producing babies for sale.
The ‘baby factory’ suspects, who were arrested at Igwuruta in Ikwerre LGA, on July 5, 2014, were identified as Odinchinma Nwala (25), Glory Anyanwu (22), Goodness Nwankwo (19), and Stanley Okechukwu (male, 36).
The Divisional Police Officer of Igwuruta Police Station, Mr. Bello Muhammed, told newsmen that they were able to apprehend the suspects after being alerted by well-meaning Nigerians.
“We sent a patrol team that went and confirmed the information. When the police traced and arrested Okechukwu, who took the team to where he kept the girls on Saturday, July 5, 2014, it was discovered that the suspects had been involved in the business for a long time. “The girls were brought from different local government areas, and further investigation revealed that after delivering, he will settle (pay) the girls N100,000 per baby girl and N150,000 for a baby boy before selling the babies,” the DPO said.
Mohammed explained that investigation was ongoing to get to the root of the matter, adding that child trafficking remains an offence in the country.
The suspect, Stanley Okechukwu, denied operating a baby factory. He added that he was only rendering assistance to the young pregnant women. Also, one of the pregnant women, who identified herself as Glory Anyanwu, said she was eight months pregnant, even as she denied that they were being kept for a baby producing business.
“He (Okechukwu) saw me in this condition and decided to assist me by offering me and my unborn baby accommodation. But I know the person that impregnated me,” Anyanwu said.
