Police Arrest Two Women for Operating Baby Factory in Ogun

Two women, Christiana D’ivoire Iyama and Margaret Ogwu, have been arrested for allegedly operating a baby factory in Ogun State.

Christiana Iyama allegedly operates the baby factory in her apartment.

Divisional Police Officer for Agbado Division, Awoniyi Adekunle, who acted on a tip-off, detailed detectives to storm the area and arrested Iyama and Ogwu.

“Preliminary investigation revealed that Margaret Ogwu was one of the girls harboured by Christiana Iyama who employed the service of a man to impregnate her and collected the child on delivery which she sold at the rate of N400,000 to one of her customers.

“She also confessed to the police that she has sold up to three children from different women to her different customers.”

Oyeyemi, however, said the state Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, had ordered the transfer of the case to the State Criminal Investigation Departments for further investigation and diligent prosecution.
