Sequel to Dr. James Ezuma’s arrest, his clinic, Ezuma Hospital, Okigwe Road Aba, was yesterday demolished by the government.
For most who didn’t read the story, his baby-making factory at Egbu, Imo State was smashed last week by the Imo State Police Command. The police was reported to have rescued 16 pregnant girls, including one whose two-hour old baby girl was sold without her knowledge
Dr. James Ezuma who runs a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) and a clinic is a native of Ndiokeke Ndiakunwanta in Arondizuogu, Ideato North LGA of Imo State and operated his NGO, "Ezuma Women and Children Right Initiative".
According to the commissioner of police, Dr. Ezuma is also very notorious for gun-running and trafficking of human beings.
The search and arrest was conducted in his premises purportedly registered as an office for an NGO, which turned out to be a baby factory where teenage girls are encouraged to get pregnant and take home the sum of N100,000 at delivery, on the condition that they would abandon their babies who would be eventually used for child trafficking.
The pregnant girls rescued in the premises of Dr. Ezuma were aged between14 and 19 years.

1. If you grew up or live in Aba, what was/is your impression of Dr Ezuma and his clinic?
2. Do you have any reason to believe he'd go this far?
3. Generally, are there legal steps one can follow to establish such facilities where babies are bartered?
4. Did the government do the right thing by demolishing the building? Shouldn't it have been put to better use?
