Men of the Ondo State Security Network Agency, also known as Amotekun Corps, have arrested a 29-year-old woman for allegedly attempting to traffic four teenage girls to Ghana. 

The suspected human trafficker identified as Happiness Titi and the girls were intercepted by the Amotekun operatives between Kogi and Ondo States boundary.

According to the teenagers, the suspect promised to take them to Ghana to work. 

The Amotekun commander, Akogun Adetunji Adeleye, said the girls will be reunited with their families after the suspect was paraded on Thursday. 

Adeleye said the victims, who were taken from Gwagwalada, Abuja, are between 14 and 19 years of age. 

“We arrested a lady, Happiness Titi, during a joint military patrol at the boundary of Ondo and Kogi. During the stop and search, we apprehended this lady with four of her victims on their way to Ghana,” Adeleye stated.

“We found out that she deceived the victims that she was taking them to Ghana for some greener pastures.” he added.
