Operatives of the Ondo State Security Network Agency, also known as Amotekun corps have arrested one Titi Happiness, 29, for attempting to traffick four girls to Ghana from Abuja.
The suspect and the girls were intercepted by the Amotekun operatives between the boundaries of Ondo and Kogi States.
Commander of Ondo Amotekun, Chief Adetunji Adeleye, said investigations showed that the girls were being moved to Ghana for cheap labour.
Adeleye said the victims, who were taken from Gwagwalada, Abuja, are between 14 and 19 years of age.
“We arrested a lady, Happiness Titi, during a joint military patrol at the boundary of Ondo and Kogi. During the stop and search, we apprehended this lady with four of her victims on their way to Ghana,” Adeleye stated.
“We found out that she deceived the victims that she was taking them to Ghana for some greener pastures.” he added.
According to one of the girls, Titi promised to find good job for them in Ghana.
She said: “It was when the security operatives apprehended them that it dawn on us that the madam planned to use us for forced labour or sexual exploitation in Ghana.
“We have lost our parents and we are struggling to feed ourselves and we agreed to follow the madam when she said she will find good work for us in Ghana where their economy is better”
