Police in Nigeria’s Ogun state have arrested two suspects at a so-called “baby factory” run by a woman who was released on bail.

The state police spokesperson Abimbola Oyeyemi said a girl who had been lured by the baby factory operator escaped and reported the matter to the police.

Officers raided the premise and rescued 10 girls with four of them already pregnant, according to TVC news.

Media reports did not reveal how old the girls were.

One of those arrested is the daughter of the woman running the operation who has been charged with human trafficking and released on bail.

The other suspect is a man who police suspect could be responsible for raping the girls.

Stories of these so-called “baby factories” are not uncommon in Nigeria.

They are run for the purpose of getting girls pregnant and selling the babies.
