Four women, alongside the principal suspect, have been arrested by the Borno Civilian JTF for operating a baby factory where children were being sold in the state.
This was made known by the Commissioner for Justice, Kakashehu Lawal, at a press conference in Maiduguri, the state capital on Thursday.
According to the commissioner, the “trend is a notorious fact which occurred in Galadima area in the state capital.
“After the restoration of relative peace in the state capital and its environs, a lot of anti-social activities started to emerge ranging from drug addiction, lawlessness and prostitution.
“On Sept. 12, 2016, we got an intelligence report by our civilian JTF in Gwange area in the town and we mandated them to arrest a woman who delivered a baby boy and came home without the baby.
“The suspects were taken to Gwange Police Station because of the magnitude of the crime and were later transferred to the Police CID Department.
“One baby was recovered and another one was rescued during a raid on the factory at Galadima.
“Sponsors of the factory were also arrested. The suspects were arraigned before the High Court.
“They are now in the maximum prison pending the next court hearing on the matter.”
