19 women are freed from 'baby factory' where abducted women were raped so their children could be sold for N350k each

Nineteen pregnant ladies and four kids have been safeguarded from a speculated infant manufacturing plant in Nigeria.

Police in Lagos, Nigeria’s biggest city, assaulted four properties on Monday and found the ladies – matured somewhere in the range of 15 and 28 – alongside the newborn children, one of whom was only a day old, as indicated by nearby reports.

Officials likewise captured Happiness Ukwuoma, matured 40 and Sherifat Ipeya, 54, who is thought to have functioned as untrained medical attendants at the processing plant.

Specialists state the youngsters would have been dealt and sold for N450k for a kid and over N300k for a young lady.

A greater part of the ladies was fooled into leaving their home towns with guarantees of local work in Lagos before being constrained into pregnancy, police said.

Men then took it in turns to rape and impregnate the women, officers added.

A few of the women joined the syndicate voluntarily believing they would be paid – but told police they had not been given any money, The Guardian Nigeria reported.

Officers were alerted to the presence of the factory on September 19 after receiving a tip-off from neighbors about a lot of pregnant women in their street.

One of the rescued women told the Vanguard newspaper that she borrowed money to travel from her home village to Lagos on the promise of housework.

When she arrived at the city’s bus stop her phone was taken from her and she was brought to the ‘factory’ where she was told she would remain for up to a year.

The woman said that, at first, she was used as a prostitute and slept with ‘customers’ each night before falling pregnant.

She was then moved to a different building and told that, if she carried the baby to term, she would be ‘paid handsomely’ and allowed to leave.

Police said the women are now undergoing rehabilitation so they can be resettled in the city, and the investigation is ongoing.

Baby factories are not uncommon in Nigeria – last week a one-week-old baby was saved from an illegal trade syndicate in Lagos, while another huge raid last year rescued 160 children.
