The National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) has arrested two members of a trafficking syndicate.

The suspects were arrested at the Upper Mission area of Benin City, the Edo State capital.

The Commander of NAPTIP Benin Zonal Command, Nduka Nwanwenne, who revealed this in an interview with Channels Television, said the suspects, Mr Festus Osakpolor Osayamwonbor and his wife, Kate were apprehended with three victims, whom they were allegedly taking to the motor park.

He said preliminary investigation indicated that the suspects were said to own a five-bedroom apartment in Tripoli, Libya, where they accommodate the people being allegedly trafficked.

Nwanwenne disclosed: “Some of the items we recovered from them are travelling passports of the victims. We also recovered a diary containing evidence of payment by suspects to them, as well as pictures of female victims that they may have trafficked in the past.

“They are claiming to have trafficked about 15 persons, But it could be more than that because they have lived in Libya for 10 years. They have a home there and they just came back in 2015 but they are still in the business. Apart from that, we also impounded the vehicle they were using to transport the victims that early morning. We also recovered items such as pants, bras, finger nails, pubic hair and all that and these are items for oath-taking, particularly for the female victims.” (Channels TV)
