Police in Kano have paraded one Professor Solomon Musa Tarfa who was arrested in December last year for allegedly running an orphanage home, ‘Du Mercy Children Development Ministry’ without approval of the government.
The orphanage which has been operating for over two decades was raided on December 25th last year and nineteen inmates of both sexes and various ages rescued.
Speaking to the press yesterday, the spokesman, Kano Police Command, DSP Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa alleged that Professor Tarfa connived with one medical doctor, Chidi Christopher who runs a maternity clinic at Nomansland area of Kano to steal the new born babies from their parents after birth.
He claimed that Dr Nwoye, who is currently at large, aided and facilitated procuring pregnant women to whom he gives necessary ante-natal medical care and after giving birth hands over the babies to the orphanage home.
The police also accused professor Tarfa’s wife Mercy Tarfa for aiding in sourcing the children through other illegal means.
