Lady deceived with employment escapes from traffickers’ den in Kano

A 22-year-old lady who was deceived with a job employment in Lagos,  has escaped from a human traffickers den in Kano , while at the verge of being trafficked to Libya.

The suspected human trafficker was alleged to be a family friend whom the lady’s parents entrusted her to.

This discovery followed the arrest of the suspected traffickerby the Nigerian Army. The suspect was identified as Mrs Olushola Areke

Confirming the arrest ,  Acting Deputy Director, Army Public Relations,  81 Division of the Nigerian Army, Lagos, Lieutenant Colonel Olabisi Ayeni, said, “ Troops of 65 Battalion Nigerian Army, operating under the 81 Division Nigerian Army ,NA, have successfully apprehended a human trafficker in Lagos. Following actionable intelligence, Mrs Olushola Areke was arrested in connection with human trafficking.

“The suspect was accused of kidnapping Miss Fayoke Kunle, a 22-year-old daughter of Mrs Ainor Kunle. Mrs. Kunle claimed she had voluntarily entrusted her daughter to the suspect, who had promised to secure employment for the young girl in Oshodi, Lagos.

“However, instead of heading to Oshodi as promised, the suspect moved Miss Kunle to Kano, where the victim later discovered herself and overheard discussions about being transported to Libya. Miss Kunle courageously escaped from her captor and returned home on April 23, 2024.

|”In response to this alarming report, troops reached out to Mrs Areke and was subsequently arrested at the designated meeting point, where she intended to pick up her supposed other victims. Both the suspect and the victim have been handed over to the Ajah Police Command in Lagos for further investigation.
