Officials of Nigerian police raided a baby factory in Osun state where fourthy-seven children including an undergraduate of Osun State Polytechnic, were rescued.
Women, Children and Social Affairs Commissioner, Olubukola Olaboopo and other officials of the ministry and police sealed off the facility identified as Oroyemi Elizabeth Covenant Home and Care Centre.
Olaboopo told The Nation that the government received reports on the goings-on in the building over a period of three to four years suggesting that there were some illegal activities there.
It was learnt that series of warnings had been issued the owner by the state government but still persisted, thus breaching the Child Right Laws, and resulting in the closure of the building.
“We have gotten several reports over a period of 3-4 years, reporting how the children in Oroyemi Elizabeth Covenant Home and Care Centre are malnourished and the environment have been very dirty and how some illegal activities have been going on more or less like a baby factory and many more allegations,” she said.
“We rescued 47 children; 10-15 adults girls are there. Those with physical disabilities, among whom is an undergraduate of Osun State Polytechnic, Iree, were among those that were rescued. Most of them were crying, they refused to follow us but we were able to take three of them.
