Pastor arrested for selling 68 children

20 December 2016, 10:01

Lagos -  General Overseer, Divineyard Deliverance Ministry, Peace Udoh, has been arrested by the police for allegedly running a baby factory in the church.

The 47-year-old according to Punch was said to have sold 64 babies before she was arrested on Sunday by operatives from the Lagos State Police Command who acted on a tip-off.

The babies were said to have been delivered in her church located in Iyana Iyesi, Ota, Ogun State.

She was apprehended with one Angela Akpan and a nurse,  Bukola Ajala, who reportedly assisted in childbirth at Udoh’s church, reports New Telegraph.

The pastor  it was gathered usually referred complicated cases to the nurse, whose clinic – El Shaddai Hospital – is located a few metres away from the church.

The bubble burst when the aunty of a girl, Eunice Ede, who gave birth in the church took the baby away.

This annoyed the pastor who reported the matter to the police .

The pastor was alleged to have accused Eunice’s aunty of stealing a baby from her church after she kicked against the decision of the pastor to collect the baby from her sister.

During investigation, it was later discovered that the pastor was actually selling the babies delivered in her church.

However, the pastor, who hails from Akwa Ibom State, refuted the allegation, saying she used the church as a maternity home to assist her pregnant church members for a token.

She said, “I have been a pastor for 13 years. I only assisted my church members during childbirth. I take delivery of 13 to 15 babies every year and I have handled over 60 cases so far. I don’t sell the babies.
