A baby factory that was allegedly operating under the guise of an orphanage in Ile-Ife has been discovered by Osun State Government.
It was learnt that 47 children were evacuated from the building, where women are apparently impregnated and their babies sold off by operators.
An undergraduate was also among women rescued at the facility which has now been sealed off by the state government.
The Women, Children and Social Affairs Commissioner Osun State, Olubukola Olaboopo led other officials of the ministry and police to seal off the facility identified as Oroyemi Elizabeth Covenant Home and Care Centre.
Olaboopo revealed that government received reports on the goings-on in the building over a period of three to four years suggesting that there were some illegal activities there.
She said despite warnings by the government, the owner persisted, thus breaching the Child Right Laws, and resulting in the closure of the building.
