Police Expose Human Trafficking Training Home In Asaba
The alleged sponsor of the training home, Madam Ejiro, though still at large at the time the police team struck, it was gathered that a group of six women were rescued who were allegedly being groomed for a journey to Ghana.
The Police Commissioner in the State who disclosed that the arrested women would help them in their investigation, assured Deltans of Police willingness to eradicate all forms of crimes in the state.
“The police team acted on intelligence gathering to uncover the training home which has been in existence for the past six months; we burst open the door that was closed for unsuspecting passersby in Umuagu Quarters and we saw array of women of different tribes being prepared for a trip to Ghana, unfortunately, the sponsor of the place had escaped”.
At the training home, which incidentally was opened about six months ago, unsuspecting women desperate to leave Nigeria for better life abroad, were lured and brain washed into believing that they could use their body to make money from sex hungry Ghanaians and white expatriates doing business in Ghana.
Speaking to newsmen, one of the victims, Christiana Odigie from Benin City, Edo State said:
“The monarch in Benin had placed a curse on trafficking, and I have no job doing so somebody introduced me to Madam Ajiro in Asaba, she had not taken any money from me, she promised to take me to Ghana before the police arrested us”.
