Nigerian police have rescued 10 people from an illegal maternity home known as ‘baby factory’ in the Mowe area of the southwestern Ogun state. The rescued include four children, four pregnant women and two other women.
The small illegal facilities are parading as private medical clinics that house pregnant women and offer their babies for sale. The rescued women told police that the owner hired men to impregnate them and then sell the newborns for profit. Two suspects, a physically-challenged man and the daughter of the owner of the clinic, were arrested.
