Heartbreaking!!! Seven Pregnant Girls Flee Lagos Baby Factory

Officers of the Isolo Police Division have found another set of seven pregnant girls barely two weeks after 19 girls were rescued from a baby factory in Lagos State.

The victims, aged between 13 and 27, escaped from another baby factor in Isolo area of Lagos State where they were camped after they realized the plan of the factory owners to sell their babies.
The girls were seen loitering around the Cele bus stop of the Oshodi-Apapa Expressway by 1 am on Wednesday and were taken into custody by some policemen in the Isolo Police Division.
Speaking about the development, the state Deputy Superintendent of Police, Bala Elkana said that the seven pregnant girls said that they had been tricked to Lagos under the guise of employment and financial help.

He stated, “On Tuesday, October 2, 2019, around 1 am, the Isolo Police Station received information that seven pregnant girls were seen stranded at the Cele bus stop along the Oshodi-Apapa Expressway. A team of detectives led by the Divisional Police Officer, Isolo, CSP Folorunsho Gabriel, mobilised to the area. The seven pregnant girls were rescued to the station and they are between the ages of 13 and 27. The girls said they were about 20 in the facility and were brought from different places, including Imo, Abia and Rivers states. Five of them came from Imo State.
They were all brought to Lagos under different guises, mostly employment. Some of them were promised help. The 13-year-old among them said she was raped in her village and became pregnant. When she was confused about how to handle the situation, somebody offered to help her and that was how she was brought to Lagos, not knowing that she was deceived. When they all discovered that they were in a baby factory and that their babies would be sold, they wanted to go, but the madam held them hostage. However, on their own, they plotted their escape and eventually fled last night (Tuesday). They were handed over to the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons.”Elkana said the suspects in custody will be thoroughly interrogated as the new case may be linked to the others.
However, he appealed to Lagos residents to be on the lookout for the 13 other pregnant girls, saying they could be stranded and might be recaptured by the owner of the baby factory.
