Police arrest 17-year-old boy for allegedly impregnating 10 ladies in Rivers State

The Rivers State Police Command has arrested a 17-year-old boy, Noble Uzuchi, with his accomplice, Chigozie Ogbonna, 29  for allegedly impregnating 10 ladies.

Police stated that the two suspects and two other ladies, Favour Bright and Peace Alikoi, were allegedly running a baby factory.

Rivers Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Grace Iringe-Koko, said the arrests were carried out following a tipoff.

In a statement, Iringe-Koko stated the four suspects operated in the Obio/Akpor and Ikwerre local government areas of the state before their arrest.

“On Saturday, January 7, 2023, around 4.45 pm, while acting on credible intelligence available to the Rivers State Police Command, C4I Intelligence Unit operatives raided two houses at Igwuruta and Omagwa communities respectively, where victims of child trafficking were being kept.

“The victims rescued in the operation are 10, most of them pregnant,” she said.

“All the victims confessed that they were lured to the illicit sales of children because of the need to meet some financial challenges. A Honda Pilot Jeep, white, was recovered from the syndicate leader,” she added.
