For so many years, Lagos state has always been the center of excellence. ‘Eko’ is also now the headquarters of baby-making factories. Police rescued 19 girls in Lagos State just two weeks after a similar incident was uncovered.
The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Bala Elkana, who confirmed the development, said seven girls claimed that they were tricked to Lagos to be used as surrogate mothers,
According to DSP Bala, “they were all brought under different guises, mostly employment. Some of them were promised help.
“The 13-year-old among them said she was raped in her village when she became pregnant. Confused on how to handle the situation, somebody offered to help her and that was how she was brought to Lagos, not knowing she was being fooled.
“When they all discovered that it was a baby factory and their babies would be sold, they wanted to go, but their madam held them hostage. However on their own, they plotted their escape and eventually fled last night,” Bala Elkana told newsmen.
