THE Nasarawa State Police Command has discovered a baby-making factory in Keffi, Keffi Local Government Area of the state, and rescued 28 children and pregnant women while the alleged proprietor of the factory has been arrested.
The chldren, who were within the age bracket of one and 15 years, were kid napped from various areas and taken to the factory.
One of the residents of the area, Mallam Jafaru Tilde, told newsmen that one of the kidnapped children sneaked out from the factory and alerted neighbours of his predicament.
According to him, “the boy said he was kidnapped by some people on his way to the market at Mpape in Abuja and brought to the house. Initially, we didn’t believe the boy until when we alerted the police who conducted a search and saw other boys and young pregnant ladies who begged them for help.”
He added that expensive cars had been coming around to pick children, adding that they never saw any of the occupants of the building interacting with people around.
“We have never suspected any criminal activity going on in the house because of the calibre of people that usually visit the place,” he added.
Confirming the report on phone, on Tuesday evening, in Lafia, the state capital, the state Deputy Police Public Relations Officer, Cornelius Ocholi, said investigations were still ongoing into the matter.
He added that the headquarters had received a signal on the matter and the public would duly be informed on its findings.
