UMUAHIA — LESS than a week after the Abia State government demolished a five-storey building used as a baby factory home in Aba, another uncompleted building has been demolished, this time, at Umuobia Olokoro in Umuahia South Local Government Area of the state.
The government said the demolished uncompleted building was being used as baby sales point.
Speaking during the demolition exercise, Special Adviser to the Governor on Security and Task Force Matters, Captain Awa Udonsi Agwu (rtd), explained that the state government had zero tolerance for crime.
According to him, based on the report by the police that the building was being used as a baby factory, Governor Theodore Orji directed that the building be demolished to serve as deterrent to others.
According Udonsi, the police fingered one Mr. Uche Uhuabunwa and his wife in the illegal business.
According to him, 18 pregnant young girls were rescued by the police during a raid in the place.
He called on Abians to give adequate information to the government on all types of crime in the state and commended the Governor Orji on the level of courage he has shown in fighting crime in the state.
