It seems like the end of the road for a couple in Ogun State.
Godday and Ebere Samuel are now in Police net for human trafficking.
This is according to a statement signed by the Ogun State Police Command Spokesperson, SP. Abimbola Oyeyemi.
They were arrested on the 17th of October 2022 for human trafficking.
The suspects according to the Command were arrested following a report lodged at Atan Ota divisional headquarters by one Adeniji Okikiolu.
The complainant reported that his 16 years old daughter, Maria Adeniji suddenly disappeared from home on the 16th of October 2022, and while search party was organised to look for her, he was informed by someone that the missing girl was seen with Ebere Samuel on the previous day.
He added that upon the information, Ebere Samuel was invited to the station, but she vehemently denied ever seeing the missing girl on or before that day.
She was detained and the confession of her husband gave them away.
The husband, Godday Samuel confessed to have taken the missing Maria to somewhere in Lagos for onward transportation to Burkina Faso where she will be engaged as a maid to one of their associates.
The Police spokesperson added that preliminary investigation revealed that the couple has been into the business of human trafficking for sometime now and that their accomplices are in Burkina Faso.
