The four accused persons were arrested on February 19 for operating a baby factory at Ogwuago, Abakpa-Nike in Enugu East Local Government Area.

The prosecutor, Peace Okpara, told the court that the accused persons operated a business where young women were made pregnant, nursed and the baby would be sold out after birth.

Okpara said that certain amount would be given to the baby’s mother based on the agreement between the mother and the accused persons.
