Just two weeks into the discovery of a baby factory that held 19 girls in Lagos State, a second baby factory has been discovered in Lagos, again.
This second baby factory was found as a result of 7 girls who had escaped from the baby baby factory around Isolo, and were found by the police.
According to the Punch news, the girls, aged between 13 and 27, had fled where they were camped after they discovered that their babies would be sold.
The 7 escaped victims found their way to Cele bus stop, Oshodi-Apapa Expressway around 1 am on Wednesday.
Their correspondent learnt that the Isolo Divisional Police Officer led a team to area and took them into custody. The pregnant girls reportedly had a two-year-old girl with them.
DSP Bala Elkana, the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, said the seven girls had been tricked to come over to Lagos.
“They said they were about 20 in the facility and they were brought from different places, including Imo, Abia and Rivers states. Five of them came from Imo State.
“They were all brought under different guises, mostly employment. Some of them were promised help.
“The 13-year-old among them said she was raped in her village and she became pregnant. When she was confused on how to handle the situation, somebody offered to help her and that was how she was brought to Lagos, not knowing she was deceived.
.“When they all discovered that it was a baby factory and their babies would be sold, they wanted to go, but the madam held them hostage. However on their own, they ploted their escape and eventually fled last night,”

He appealed to the residents of Lagos State to lookout for the remaining 13 girls, as they could be stranded and in need of help.
The police also stated that considering the style of this new case is similar to that of the old one, there could probably be a link between the two cases.
