        Selling your baby for mere $160 sounds just so insane and sickening...



        Nigerian authorities say teenagers are forced to sell their babies for witchcraft and illegal adoption.

        Nigerian police raided a so-called baby factory in the south-eastern city of Aba, rescuing 32 pregnant teenage girls who were allegedly being held captive in order to have their babies bought, the AFP reports.

        Authorities claim the raided home in Aba was used to lock up the teenagers, force them to get pregnant and then sell their babies to be trafficked and used for ritual witchcraft or illegal adoption.

        "We stormed the premises of the Cross Foundation in Aba three days ago following a report that pregnant girls aged between 15 and 17 are being made to make babies for the proprietor," police commissioner for Abia state Bala Hassan told AFP.

        The police commissioner said they rescued 32 pregnant girls and held the owner of the home who is being questioned over allegations that he sells the babies.

        The girls allegedly sell their babies for between 25,000 and 30,000 naira ($160 and $192) to the home owner, who then sells them for upwards of one million naira each to buyers.

        The home's owner denied running a "baby factory" or "baby farm," as it has been called in the local press. He says the home has been set up for teenagers with unwanted pregnancies, BBC reports.

        The United Nations ranks human trafficking the third most common crime in Nigeria, after economic fraud and drug trafficking.
        It estimates that at least 10 children are sold across Nigeria each day. :'(

        Unfortunately that's not something new, I've heard about such stories in the past and not only from Nigeria. In my view the buyers are to blame as much as the parents, they are the ones that keep this sick market going.

        I don't find it amazing, but it shows just how lax the laws are in many countries. Yes, things do happen here, but I doubt such a thing would last for very long.

        I read today that some of the girls, who were between 15 and 17, told authorities that the clinic's owner, Dr. Hyacinth Orikara who is apparently facing up to 14 years in prison, forced them to sell their babies to him for around $190, depending on the gender.

        I agree that things like this is nothing new but no matter how many times I hear or see them, it never fails to bring fresh angers out of me. >:(

        Very sick indeed Nan and it makes me mad too.  Makes me wonder how long has it been going on and how many babies have been "sold"?
