A baby factory was discovered  around Vulcaniser Bus Stop in the Akinremi Estate, Adigbe,
Abeokuta, Ogun State, on Thursday .
The incident comes barely two weeks after eight women were rescued from a baby factory in the Akute area of the state.
Eyewitnesses said that the youths, who thought
the building was a ritual killers’ den broke into the compound.
In a fit of rage, the youths were said to have set two vehicles ablaze as well as the one-storey building.
A traffic official, who witnessed the incident, said the youths were able to recover a blood-filled basin, coffin, mortar, calabash, effigy, assorted charms, clothes, live scorpion and other suspected fetish items.
According to residents, the building, which is located close to
Redeemed Christian Church of God, Dominion House parish, was let out to an unidentified individual.
It was said that trouble began after a pregnant woman, escaped from the building.
The eyewitness said, “The place was uncovered in the wee hours of
Thursday when one of the victims escaped and ran into a nearby
building. She pleaded with the residents to save her from her
assailants.
“The pregnant woman said she was from Abia State and her elder
sister sold her to the people for N100,000.”
It was learnt that the matter was reported at the Adigbe Police
Division and the victim was taken to a nearby hospital.
It was learnt that when the police searched the building, three other
pregnant women and five children were rescued.
Around 8am, however, residents, who had heard of the incident
unleashed mayhem.
The eyewitness said, “On Wednesday, the police uncovered a
ritualist’s den in Ewekoro area and people were still livid over the
incident.
“When the youths heard of the Thursday incident, they took the
law into their hands.
“They set the place ablaze, but policemen attached to the Quick
Response Squad stopped them from doing more damage.
The youths refused to leave until the police fired teargas canisters.”
The state Commissioner of Police, Ikemefuna Okoye, told
reporters that three pregnant ladies and five kids were rescued from
the base.
Okoye maintained that the building was a baby factory and not a
ritualist’s den.
The police commissioner appealed to residents to remain calm and
vigilant, adding that thorough investigation would be carried out.
