Baby Trafficking in Nigeria
Nigerian Police Uncover ‘Baby-Factory’
Following a house raid, Nigerian police found six pregnant teenage girls. It is alleged the two men and a woman who were arrested at the scene were operating a child trafficking ring. The girls had been lured into the house and promised money for their babies. Police are still trying to unravel details of the situation. This is not the first such raid in Nigeria. Human trafficking, which includes the selling of children, is the third most common crime in Nigeria.
