Six pregnant young girls were yesterday rescued by men of the Nigerian police when they raided a baby factory in Port Harcourt.
The Police followed a lead when they found “a lady was found in suspicious circumstances with a day old baby and after interrogation she confessed that she gave birth to a baby in Port Harcourt,” the police spokeswoman said.
Joy Elomoko of the Imo State police said some detectives followed the girl to Port Harcourt where six expectant mothers were found in an illegal clinic run by a woman.
“The woman could not produce any document authorising her to operate the clinic and she was subsequently arrested,” she said.
She said the girls also told police that they were being kept in the home to make babies which would be sold to willing buyers.
Elomoko said the suspect would be taken to court after police investigation. (PMNEWS)
