Shocking! Pregnant Teenagers Held Hostage Until Delivery at “Baby Factory” in Imo State | Watch the Channels TV News Report



Imo Baby FactoryEvery few months, news reports of a new “baby factory” or baby selling syndicate hits the news headlines in Nigeria. This shocking trend seems to be growing from strength to strength despite the fact that there is a structured process from adoption in most states around Nigeria.

Here is the latest report via Channels TV

The police have discovered that the pseudo motherless babies home located in Umuaka community of Imo State had held pregnant teenage girls hostage until they delivered their babies, with some of them allegedly binging the pregnancy from their homes. One of the victims who spoke to Channels Television revealed that all the occupants of the home were already pregnant before they were taken into the home. The girls were promised between N50,000 to N350,000 for a baby boy and N20,000 to N320,000 for a girl. However, the victims were barred from leaving the premises until their delivery.

Initial reports of the fake orphanage claimed that a young man who was arrested with the girls was employed to get them pregnant.

    A crying shame. Thank goodness this was exposed. Hopefully the state government will really rehabilitate these girls.

    So glad this has been EXPOSED – cos most of the buyers are told they are pregnant through the use of herbs but scans wont show a foetus until the madames say delivery time is ready.
    By the way this happens in other countries too just a different method, a good example is when couples travel to foreign countries to adopt children, some of those kids were stolen or some other deception involved. Heard of how a hospital in canada had to put extra security measures because of cases where babies were stolen from wards.

    The matter should be addressed and official process of adoption should be firmed up.
    If these girls were thrown out of their homes because they became pregnant, then there should be a process where they can safely have their babies unanimously and given help to go back to school.
    Much as I’m against selling babies, I still believe abortion is far worse and giving the babies to parents who genuinely want them is not such a bad thing.

    Proper sex education is very necessary, some of those teenage girls won’t have gotten pregnant in the first place, talk less of being sent away from home, if they had proper sex education.

    This is the picture. Madam one thousand gather pregnant teenagers form far and wide, who got pregnant and have no means of supporting themselves. She promises them monetary reward in exchange for their babies after delivery. She pays them when they deliver??? Then take their babies and sell them to people looking to adopt babies for much more money?? The girls walk away with their money to start a new life.

    Cry the beloved country!!!!!!!!!
