On June 1st, 2011, police in Nigeria freed 32 teen girls from the dark depths of human trafficking. Each girl was pregnant, as they were enslaved as baby making machines in this horrific “baby factory.”
Thanks to a tip, police raided the clinic in Aba, known as The Cross Foundation. The tip had informed the police that the owner was keeping pregnant girls and forcing them to sell their babies. Some of the girls, ages 15 to 17, reported that they were forced to sell their babies for $190. These babies fell victim to the region’s sex trade and human trafficking markets. Some allegedly were even sold for tribal rituals.
The owner could face up to 14 years in prison for selling the babies of these girls. The owner denies the charges, stating that the clinic only cared for girls who had unwanted pregnancies.
The women are now safely at the regional headquarters of the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons, an anti-trafficking organization.
