The police in Kano have arrested one Professor Solomon Musa Tarfa for allegedly running an orphanage home without securing government's approval.
Daily Trust reports that Professor Tarfa was arrested in December 2019 but was paraded by the police on Thursday, January 16.
The police rescued nineteen inmates, both males and females, from the orphanage home.
According to the Kano police command's spokesperson, DSP Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa, Tarfa runs the orphanage home in collaboration with a medical doctor who allegedly steals babies from their parents after birth.
Legit.ng gathered that the medical doctor, who is reportedly at large, also assisted in getting pregnant women whom he took care of and handed their babies to Professor Tarfa after birth.
The professor's wife was also accused of sourcing babies for the orphanage home through other illegal means.
The police said another orphanage was linked with Tarfa in Kaduna where eight children have also been rescued.
Speaking during his parade, Professor Tarfa denied the police allegations, saying his orphanage is government approved.
Reacting the questions on the alleged illegal sourcing of children, Tarfa said it is his lawyer who will speak on it.
In a similar development, a baby factory in a detention camp in the Ikotun area of Lagos was uncovered by the police command in the state after weeks of close monitoring and utilisation of intelligence reports in September 2019.
Police officers also rescued 19 pregnant girls (between the ages of 15 and 28 years) and a day-old-baby.
The policemen were able to arrest the caregivers and nurse to the captors and the operators of the hotels in which the pregnant girls were hidden.
Narrating her bitter experience, Hope Bright, one of the captive girls, from Rivers, whose two-year-old child was taken from her, said: “As I reached there, the woman checked me. Suddenly, my stomach started kicking me.
"From there, they said that I will born. They took me to the hospital, God helped me I delivered that child, but the baby died. They collected the baby from me, I did not see that child again."
