Amotekun Arrests Suspected Human Trafficker

Suspected human trafficker, Isaac Okonu, 23, has been arrested by operatives of Amotekun in Osun State for trafficking five children from Akwa-Ibom State.

The suspect, according to Osun Amotekun Corps Commandant, Brigadier-General Bashir Adewinmbi, was arrested at Ifetedo in Osun State after the driver of the vehicle transporting them reported suspected activities to the operatives.

Adewimbi said that the suspect transported the young boys from the town without their parents’ consent and also lied to them that they were going to Lagos.

He added that the suspect was arrested on Thursday evening and confessed that the boys were to be taken to a farm in Osun State.

The victims narrated that they were taken out of Akwa Ibom State without the consent of their parents or relatives, adding that the suspect lied to them and said that he was taking them to Lagos State to provide jobs for them, not knowing that he was taking them to Osun State to work on the farm.

Adewinmbi added that the suspect and the victims have been transferred to the National Agency for Prohibition of Trafficking in Person Headquarters in Osogbo for subsequent interrogation and prosecution.
