Soldiers attached to the Goodluck Ebele Jonathan Barracks; 14 Brigade Headquarters of the Nigerian Army, Ohafia, Abia State, yesterday rescued 21 heavily pregnant women during a raid on a baby factory.

The pregnant women were between ages 17 and 25 years. Two babies were also rescued from the centre and human parts allegedly seen around the centre which the army alleged was trafficking children and also using them for ritual purposes.

AttNews gathered that a 34-year-old Chef, Katherine Oyechi Ngwanma, was equally arrested in the raid while the owner of the facility, Mrs. Nma Achumba, who apparently knew about the raid, escaped arrest.

The facility known as Nma Charity Home, was said to be located near the popular Umunkpeyi Market, along old Umuahia-Aba Road, Isiala Ngwa South local government area of the state, and was registered with the Abia State Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development as a charity home.

Our correspondent reports that Nma Charity Home has been raided by security operatives within and outside the state on several occasions and each time the place was raided, several pregnant girls were rescued while the operator, Mrs. Achumba would escape arrest.

The last of such raids before yesterday’s was in November 2019, when the Imo State Police Command, under the leadership of then Police Commissioner, CP Rabiu Ladodo, acted on a tip-off, raided the home and rescued 14 pregnant teenage girls and four children.
