Suspected Human Traffickers Arrested with 26 Minors Between the Ages of Eight and Ten

The men of the Ogun State Police Command on Monday paraded three suspected human traffickers with 26 children who are between the ages of eight and 10.
The suspects and the minors, who were paraded at the state police command headquarters, Eleweran, Abeokuta, were said to have been arrested on Sunday at a motor park at Ibafo, in the Obafemi-Owode Local Government Area of the state.
The three suspected human traffickers ─ Zainab Ahmad, 18; Aisha Abdullahi, 55; and Zuliat Abdulmalik, 45 ─ allegedly took the underage children, which comprised 25 girls and one boy, from their parents in Kano State, and were bringing them to Lagos for menial jobs.
The Commissioner of Police, Abdulmajid Ali, said the suspects might be taking their victims to Lagos for sinister motives. He said, 
“Our attention was drawn yesterday (Sunday) that some groups of underage were seen at a motor park in the Ibafo area. 
“Our team raced there and arrested the three women, who were going with the children to Lagos. 
“Their mission in Lagos, according to the suspects, is to take them to do some menial jobs. But the kids did not even know what they were in for.”
