A group of five pregnant women and four newborn babies were rescued from being sold into slavery, police in Nigeria said.
Delta State Police rescued the pregnant women and the babies after they have been put up for sale at a baby factory discovered near the Oko Market Junction, on the outskirts of Asaba.
The women and the babies were kept by a criminal gang in houses made of wood and cement bags. The owner of the baby factory, 40-year-old Chinelo Ezeogbu, was arrested after the successful police operation.
According to the initial police investigation, the operators of the baby factory recruited women from all over the country and invite men to impregnate them. After giving birth, the babies were sold into slavery.
The suspect will be brought before a magistrate’s court judge for a bail hearing, while charges are still pending.
