Suspected Human Trafficker Nabbed in Benue




A suspected human trafficker identified as Mnena Kwaghmande has been nabbed by the Benue State Command of Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps with six girls.

Mnena was intercepted on January 5, 2022, in Gboko, Benue State while the girls were picked from Vandeikya Local Government Area.

The girls who were already prepared to traffick through Burkina-Faso were between the ages of 16 and 20.

Dr Philip Okoh, the State Commandant of the Defense Corps, said the suspect when interrogated claimed to have told parents of the young girls that they would be helping her to in her restaurant in Burkina Faso.


Okoh said;

“We are showing to the public, what we have done so far in terms of securing Benue State and ensuring peace.

“Behind me, we have a seasoned trafficker who goes about luring unsuspecting parents through convincing them that they are going abroad for greener pastures.

“Investigation has revealed that they were taking them to Burkina Faso. We did this operation in conjunction with NAPTIP.”


The NSCDC state commandant also cautioned parents against releasing their children to people who promise them greener pastures abroad.
