Fleeing suspected baby factory operator arrested in Ogun

Operatives of the Ogun state Police Command have arrested one Mrs. Florence Ogbonna, who allegedly operates baby factories in the state.

The command had recently busted two baby factories and freed more than 20 victims, including pregnant teenagers and children.

The factories, which were located in Ofada and Mowe, Obafemi-Owode Local Government Area of the state, were linked to Ogbonna.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, told journalists that Ogbonna, who was standing trial for human trafficking, jumped bail and bolted following the newly-discovered baby factories linked to her.

It was gathered that after about two weeks of manhunt, the police apprehended the suspect.

Speaking with journalists at the Zone 2 Command in Abeokuta, on Monday, the suspect denied selling babies, but said she was “only helping young ladies, who need help.”

The self-acclaimed nurse also denied jumping bail, saying she took permission to attend her daughter’s wedding.

Ogbonna stated: “I have nine children; I attend to people, mostly young ladies, who need help. I don’t sell babies; I only help those who are in need and God has been helping me. I don’t go and meet anybody, they come to me.”
