Pregnant sex worker rescued from traffickers in Oyo

The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), in Oyo State has rescued a three months pregnant human trafficking victim.

The NIS spokesman Olufemi Adetunji made this known while briefing newsmen.

Mr Adetunji said the victim has been handed over to the National Agency for Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP).

He said the victim was rescued at the Saki area of the state by officials of the command.

The spokesman said the 20-year-old victim of human trafficking was brought from Akwa-Ibom  to Oyo State on June 19 by the suspect with a promise to get her a good job.

Mr Adetunji said the suspect was aware of the victim’s pregnancy before engaging her as a sex worker.

“Instead of getting her the promised job, she engaged her into prostitution and collected the money from men who slept with the victim.

“Our men also apprehended  the suspect and have handed her over to NAPTIP for further investigation and prosecution,” he said.
