According to the state Police Spokesman, Sylvester Igbo, the arrest of Mr. Ifeanyichukwu Agwu is as a result of his involvement in conveying pregnant young girls from Amasiri to Amaraku, Amaigbo in Nwangele local government area of Imo State where the baby factory is located.
The suspect, Agwu was said to have taken a pregnant teenager, Miss Uchechi Sunday from Amasiri in Afikpo North local government area of Ebonyi State to the baby factory, making her to believe that he was taking her to a provision store where she would be engaged as a sales girl.
Uchechi, when she got to the factory was shocked to discover that only pregnant girls were confined to the building used for the factory but had no option but to remain in the building till June when she eventually delivered her baby.
After the delivery, Uchechi was stripped of her baby and transported to Okigwe where she was given N10,000 to transport herself to Amasiri and to purchase some new clothes.
Angered by the development, her parents reported the incident to the police who commenced investigation into the matter.
The police spokesman explained that investigation led to the arrest of the suspect and a nurse, Gloria Ezenwa in Feziechi Hospital at Orlu which served as a referral centre to the baby factory when complications arose.
Igbo said police would intensify efforts to ensure the arrest of the proprietor of the factory identified as Madam Favour who is now at large.
