Another Baby Factory Uncovered, Owner Arrested

Security agents from the Imo State Police Command have arrested a suspected human trafficker from Abia State.

The suspect was arrested on Wednesday, June 24, 2015, through a tip-off members of the public.

The State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Austin Evbakhavbokun, explained that the arrest of the suspect was sequel to a report that one Miss Ibuchi Okafor (20) had left her home.


Okafor, according to Evbakhavbokun, had earlier absconded from her home with her baby and returned without the child, a development that raised suspicion that she sold the baby.

Upon interrogation, the state police commissioner, who spoke through his Police Public Relation Officer, DSP Andrew Enwerem, said Okafor disclosed to the operatives that she was delivered of a baby boy at the home of one Chief Emmanuel Eke of Mbutu, in the Isiala Ngwa South Council area of Abia State.

Evbakhavbokun said Eke later revealed that she sold the baby to a yet-to-be identified buyer.

He said that operatives of his command stormed the home of Chief Emmanuel Eke where other pregnant ladies believed to be producing babies for sale were arrested.

While parading the suspects, the commissioner identified the others as Nkasiobi Uchenna (23), Ella David (24), Blessing Nwabekee, a deaf and dumb, who could not state her age and address and Oluchi Victor (25), who before the arrest, reccruit ladies for Chief Eke.

He added that in the course of investigation, Eke confessed to the crime and said that he sold the baby delivered by Okafor to an undisclosed buyer at the cost of N500,000.


The police commissioner, however, assured that the suspects would be charged to court for trafficking children as soon as investigations were over.
