A suspected human trafficker, Adebisi Muideen has been arrested for allegedly trafficking four teenage girls from Osun to Kano State.
The girls were to be trafficked via the Tripoli corridor in Libya.
Three of the girls later escaped from Muideen’s den in Kano and got in touch with their parents who reported the matter to the police.
Consequently, the three girls have been reunited with their families but the whereabouts of the fourth girl is still unknown.
Upon interrogation, the suspected trafficker said the girls willingly accepted to go to Libya for work.
“My brother who resides in Tripoli instructed me to get girls for him and send the girls to one man in Kano who will take them to Libya from Kano,” he said.
The suspect said when he got to the man’s house in Kano, he met so many girls that were being processed for the journey to Libya.
The Spokesperson of the Osun State Police Command, Yemisi Opalola confirmed the arrest.
According to her, “The suspect invited the young girls for a birthday party at a hotel in Ile-Ife and gave them food and drinks.
“After taking the food and drinks, the girls slept off and later woke up in Kano State en route to Tripoli, capital of Libya.”
Opalola disclosed that the case would be diligently investigated and charged to court at the completion of the investigation.
