A female victim has revealed how the owner of a baby factory imprisoned young women and run an illegal business at the facility.
The baby-making home is located at the Imedu Olori area of Mowe in Obafemi Owode Local Government Area of Ogun State.
It was discovered by the police on Friday last week when the victim regained her freedom after escaping from the facility.
The Police Public Relations Officer in Ogun, Abimbola Oyeyemi, revealed this in a statement.
In her complaint at the Mowe Police Station, the lady explained that she was lured into the home and held captive there for some time, in company with other victims.
According to the victim, the owner of the criminal facility who lured her into the home usually contracts the service of some able body men to sleep with them and impregnate them.
She added that immediately any of them gave birth to a baby, such a child would be taken away by the suspect to only God knows where.
“Upon her report, the DPO Mowe division SP Marvis Jayeola mobilised his detectives to the scene where 12 ladies between the ages of 20 – 25 years were rescued with six amongst them heavily pregnant,” the statement said.
Those arrested included the suspect said to be the owner of the baby-making home, Florence Ogbonna, as well as two men – Chibuke Akabueze and Chibuzor Okafor.
The Commissioner of Police in Ogun, Kenneth Ebrimson, consequently ordered the immediate transfer of the suspects to the Anti-Human Trafficking and Child Labour Unit of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, for discreet investigation.
He also directed that the victims be kept in safe and protective custody, pending when they would be reunited with their respective families.
