Madida who has evaded justice over the years, was arrested on Friday 17th of May, 2024 following an undercover documentary by an investigative reporter simply known as Ramatu, facilitated by Women Radio Centre and supported by MacArthur Foundation.

According to an announcement by Women Radio Centre, owners of WFM 91.7 in Lagos “a significant breakthrough has been achieved on Friday 17 May 2024 with the arrest of key perpetrator Ali Madida who is involved in 5-thousand-naira illegal abortion to minors in Jos Plateau. Madida was apprehended by Jos police law enforcement officers led by DSP Alfred Alabo following the release of an undercover documentary”

The centre commended the government of Plateau state and the Nigerian Police Force for their swift response.

It further said “This arrest marks a crucial step in our ongoing efforts to dismantle the network responsible for exploiting vulnerable minors. It sends a strong message that such illegal and unethical practices will not be tolerated”.

Ramatu, the reporter who investigated the criminal activities of Dr Madida, is a 24-year-old fellow of the Women Radio Centre Female Academy and a freelance journalist with BUK Radio/TV.

Signature TV reports that illegal abortion has become a major problem in Nigeria in the recent past.

Performance Monitoring for Action (PMA) study, found that 4.6% of reproductive aged women undergo an abortion each year, equaling nearly 2 million abortions annually.

The study further revealed that “a majority of these abortions are considered unsafe and such unsafe procedures contribute to 10% of maternal deaths, equivalent to approximately 6,000 women dying each year”.

The Women Radio Centre calls on anyone with additional information  to contact the police on 0701 898 8546 and projects@wfm917.com
