Two women namely Happiness Ukwuoma ‘f’ 40 years old and Sherifat Ipeya ‘f’ 54 years old (pictured above) who acted as nurses but had no formal education, were arrested in connection with the case. They informed the police that the baby factory is owned by one Madam Oluchi from Imo state who is currently on the run.

Bala says preliminary investigation shows that the young women were mostly abducted by the suspects for the purpose of getting them pregnant and selling their babies to potential buyers. The girls were tricked with employment as domestic staff in Lagos. The Babies are sold between #300,000 and #500,000 depending on the sex. Boys are sold for N500,000 and girls for #300,000.
