The Ekiti State Command of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has paraded two suspects for allegedly carrying out illegal abortion.
The suspects, according to the state commandant of the corps, Mr Raji Adedoyin, specialised in carrying out abortions illegally around Tiwaloluwa Resort Area, FHA Estate, Afao Road, Ado -Ekiti. The commandant, while parading the suspects at the headquarters of the corps, reiterated the commitment of the NSCDC to freeing the state of quack doctors.
He maintained that no religion supports abortion, adding that if a pregnancy must be terminated, the concerned person should visit government or certified hospitals.
He said the suspects, Mrs Elizabeth Akintoye and Mrs Dupe Akinyele, were arrested with their equipment. Adedoyin said the accused claimed to be an apprentice and confessed to the crime.
The commandant said the Intelligence Department had a hectic time in arresting the suspects after receiving several complainants about the suspects.
He said the perpetrators would soon be charged to court after the conclusion of preliminary investigation into the crime. (NAN)
