In the state’s Aluu, Ikwerre Local Government Area, the Rivers State Police Command has discovered a “baby factory” run by a child trafficking organisation.

Six expectant women were freed from the factory that made babies by the command.

The women, who ranged in age from 20 to 23, were being held with the purpose of trading their newborn children after they gave birth.

On Tuesday, the pregnant ladies and Akudo Azoroh, the center’s owner and confessed child trafficker, were both taken into custody.

Azoroh clarified that she does not offer the newborns to ritualists but rather to families without children of their own.

She noted that the women were already pregnant when they came to her, adding that she pays 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.

According to her;

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.

Some of the pregnant women confessed that they went to the factory pregnant and that they intended to give out the children after birth because they do not have the financial capacity to cater for the children after birth.
