ENUGU, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA)- The Police in Osun have arrested one Adebisi Muideen for attempting to traffic four teenage girls from Osun to Kano State en route to Tripoli in Libya.
This is contained in a statement by Police spokeswoman SP Yemisi Opalola.
“The suspect invited the young girls to 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, the capital of Libya,” she said.
The Police added that three of the girls managed to escape in Kano and later called their parents, who reported the matter to the police.
“Three of the girls have been reunited with their families, but the whereabouts of the fourth girl is still unknown at the moment,” the Police statement revealed.
The Police, however, said the suspect claimed that the girls willingly accepted to go to Libya to work.
The suspect claimed that his brother, who resides in Tripoli, instructed him to get some girls for him and send them to a man in Kano who would later take them to Libya.
“The suspect said that when he got to the man’s house in Kano, he met many girls who were being processed for the journey to Libya.
“The police are investigating this matter, and the suspect will be charged to court upon completion of our investigations,” added the statement.
