A syndicate which specializes in luring pregnant teenage girls eager to deliver their babies under cover, just to sell the newborns to ritualists and childless couples thereafter, has been smashed in Asaba, Delta State capital.
A middle-aged woman alleged to be running an illegal maternity centre at a camp in Oduke, in the outskirts of the town, has been arrested, while a nurse and a medical doctor attached to the home are presently on the run, as police intensify efforts to nab them.
It was also gathered that upon delivery of such babies depending on the s*x of the child, they are sold for between N400,000 and N500,000 each.
Police sources have confirmed the story, saying the suspect would be arraigned in court as soon as possible, just as search for the doctor and Nurse continues.
