Men of Ogun state Police Command have arrested a fleeing suspect, Mrs Florence Ogbonna, who allegedly operates baby – making factories in Ogun State.
The command had recently in separate operations busted two baby factories and freed more than 20 victims including pregnant teenagers and children.
The factories which were located around Ofada and Mowe in Obafemi – Owode Local Government Area of the state, were linked to Mrs Ogbonna.
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state,DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi had told newsmen that Mrs Ogbonna who was already standing trial for human trafficking, jumped bail and bolted following the newly discovered factory linked to her.
It was gathered that after about two weeks of manhunt, the police operatives have apprehended the suspect.
Speaking with newsmen at Zone 2 Command in Abeokuta, on Monday, the suspect denied selling babies, but “only helping young ladies who need help.”
The self – acclaimed nurse also denied jumping bail, saying she took a permission to attend her daughter’s wedding.
She said “I have nine children, I attend to people mostly young ladies that need help. I don’t sell babies, I only help those that are in need and God has been helping me. I don’t go and meet anybody, they come to me.
” I registered motherless baby home, I registered Divine Child care with CAC. I have not registered with the Ogun State ministry of women affairs and social welfare because I am still building where I put the children.
“I did not know about any baby you are saying.
“I didn’t jump bail, I didn’t run away, I told my lawyer to help me because I want to go for my daughter’s wedding and I have another burial, I cannot be going and coming because of my health. I was away for the burial when police went to our house and arrested the children.”
