Man And his Girlfriend Arrested for Trafficking Girls & Using Them For Prostitution in Lagos

A 27yr old man named Ikechukwu Egbulefu and his girlfriend 26yr old Vera John has been arrested by the Lagos state Police command for allegedly trafficking young ladies to Lagos for prostitution.

The state Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, while parading the suspects said they lured the victims with promise of jobs and better living but were dumped at at Wagbas Hotel Ajah, Lagos for prostitution.
“The victims of the crime were rescued, comprising Helen Dickson (22), Deborah David (18 ) and Chiwendu Onyekachi (18).”

The police boss explained further that the victims revealed that the suspects took them to a shrine in the Epe-Ijebu area of Lagos State to swear to an oath that they would not abscond from the hotel, adding that after the victims had sex with various men, they surrendered the proceeds to Vera John.

One of the victims, Onyekachi, said, 
“I know Egbulefu from my village in Imo State. He told me that he had a job for me as a sales girl in a hotel in Lagos, so I followed him and he introduced me to John who told me the kind of job I would be doing. When I didn’t accept, she threatened to abandon me on the road to suffer.

“They made us to swear to an oath so we would not run away. They took Dickson and me to one herbalist that used hair from our head and private parts to make soap and we were told to use the soap to bath.

“They also gave us one black thing to eat. They said if we run away, we would run mad.

“I was turned into a prostitute; I used to sleep with 10 people in a day and make up to N 20, 000. Even during menstruation period, I still had sex with men.”

The suspects admitted to using young ladies for prostitution.

The Commissioner of Police, however, said the suspects would be charged to court.
