Again? Police Rescue 9 pregnant girls from Baby Factory

The Enugu State Police Command on Saturday rescued nine pregnant girls and women during a raid on a baby factory at the 9th Mile area of the state
The Police Public Relations Officer of the command, Mr. Ebere Amaraizu, disclosed that the baby factory was owned and operated by one Ikechukwu Onoh of Etiti, Amakwo-Ngwo Village, in Udi Local Government Area of Enugu.
Onoh and the ladies were taken into police custody after the raid.
According to Amaraizu, the factory was run in Onoh’s private residence.
Our correspondent learnt that operatives of the 9th Mile Division of the command raided the baby factory after monitoring activities in the building over a period.
The ladies are currently helping the police in ongoing investigations.

Onoh said he decided to keep the pregnant girls in his private residence when the said hospital was closed down.
He admitted that although he was supposed to formally inform the ministry within 24 hours of admitting any pregnant woman, he only notified the authorities through phone calls and not in writing.
Onoh could not produce any reference letter through which any of the girls was referred to his home. But some of the girls told the police that Onoh took care of them on the basis of an agreement that he would take the babies upon delivery.
Christabel, who claimed she got pregnant after she was raped, said her aunt directed her to Onoh’s residence
