The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps’ (NSCDC) Ondo State Command announced on Monday that it had detained two people, Babatunde Oluwasola and Dada Fowowe, for their involvement in human trafficking.

Daniel Aidamenbor, the NSCDC’s spokesman, revealed this in a statement made accessible to the press.

According to Aidamenbor, the individuals were apprehended in the towns of Akure and Ondo.

He claimed they were involved in the recruitment and trafficking of three young ladies to fly to Libya in April of this year.

Aidamenbor said, “Babatunde Oluwasola, a.k.a. Osanle, 56 years old, a carpenter from Osun State who resides in Akure, recruited three girls from Akure to Libya sometime around April 2023.

“He got one of them with the help of Dada Fowowe, a.k.a. Iya Alaso, 47, a trader from Ondo State. The victims who travelled through the desert to Libya called Babatunde through the agent that received them two weeks after they departed from Akure, Ondo State, to inform him of their arrival in Libya.

“The victim, a 15-year-old girl, lived with her parents in Akure until her departure; she had left without telling anyone about her journey. It was upon her arrival in Libya that she discovered that the situation was not what she bargained for; hence, she reached out to her father, who had been looking for her, for help, and the father, in return, reported the case to the NSCDC, Ondo State Command.”

He stated that the suspects had already made confessional confessions and that the case would be handed over to the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons for further action after the inquiry.
