  1. Thank God for the Catholic Priest that regained his freedom from his abductors. It's well with Nigeria.

  2. This woman that do baby factory, where are thier conscience? And how do they convince this girl to give up their babies? Abi na jazz?

    1. Don’t put all the blame on the woman. Some of the girls approach them and offer to carry pregnancies in exchange for financial services. The same girls get pregnant by the young men under the woman’s service hence the reason why both are not emotionally involved or tied to the baby when it is born.

    2. Waow, but the woman that suppose to be a mother has to be blame my dear.
