SUSPECTED CHILD TRAFFICKER, 52 KIDS FOUND
LAGOS, NIGERIA-- Police found dozens of dusty, exhausted children --some as youg as 1 - packed into a fishmonger's truck during a routine search in Nigeria's capital, and a suspected child trafficker claims their parents consented to hiring them out as servants, authorities said Monday.

The suspect, Fatima Baba, said she brought the 52 children from Makwa in northern Nigeria's Niger state to hire them out as domestic servants according to Lagos state police spokesman Ademola Adebayo.

Child trafficking is an Africa wide problem, and a police spokesman in the capital, Abuja, said authorities were investigating whether there were plans to sell some children into slavery.

Five other children found Saturday in a container on a truck that normally transports fish to market were between the ages of 1 and 5. The eldest were 14. Twelve adults who shared the container also were detained, Adebayo said.

Charges against Baba and the driver were pending, police said.
