One of the victims, Hope Bright from Rivers State who recounted her nightmare said her two-year-old child whom she came along with from the village was taken forcefully from her.
According to a victim, she was taken to the clinic immediately she arrived at the factory; her baby was born but was told the baby died.
“As I reached there, the woman checked me. Suddenly, my stomach started kicking me. From there, they said that I will born.
“They took me to the hospital, God helped me I delivered that child, but the baby died,” she narrated.
The police spokesman, Bala Elkana, said in a press conference that the babies were sold based on their sex; male babies were sold for N500,000, the girls were sold for N300,000.
“On September 19,2019, at 4pm, while acting on the strength of information from a reliable source, detectives from the Isheri Osun Police Station, led by the Divisional Police Officer, CSP Chike Ibe, stormed a building at 14 Adisa Street, Ayanwale area, Ikotun, Lagos, suspected to be used for child trafficking.
