Human Trafficker Arrested In Saki Oyo State As NIS Rescues 6 Nigerian Girls Heading To Burkina Faso

6 young Nigerian girls taken from different cities in Edo State have been rescued from the hand of a suspected human trafficker while attempting to smuggle them to Burkina Faso for prostitution.

According to NIS Comptroller General for Oyo State, Ekaete Isang, the man had travelled from Edo State with the girls to Saki in Oyo State before he was caught.

The young girls have been reunited with their parents.

Here is what Ekaete Isang said;

“In my four months in this state, we have saved 192 young girls from human traffickers and reunited them with their parents. One of the cases involved one Francis Osifo, who travelled from Edo State to Saki in Oyo State with six young girls.

“He was heading for Burkina Faso with the aim of involving the girls in illegal activities. But before he could cross the Nigerian border with them, our patrol team caught up with him and he was arrested.

We have reunited the girls with their parents while Osifo has been handed over to the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons.”

  1. The economic situation of the country is making this young girls think there is better life in such places like Libya etc . I come across two young ladies not long ago who were planning to travel to Libya and they were so excited that they are leaving Nigeria. I was able to make them see the mirage of hope in their anticipated financial breakthrough by telling them what they would be asked to do which is prostitution anyway and the dangers of not only sexual transmitted diseases but falling into the hands of psychopath who may kill them too and at the end of our 45 minutes conversation they changed their minds. My only error was not patient enough to get me the contact of their recruiter who I should have been sure was traced and arrested and probably prosecuted.

    Often times it is the desperation of these young girls that puts them in a precarious but desperate position to travel to the nations for a better life. Were this rescued girls drudged or forced to go with the man? The girls too deserve some punishment as a clear deterrent to would be girls that would want to vuluntarily put themselves forward for this perilous journey. God save Nigeria.
