Soldiers Nab Four Suspected Human Traffickers

Soldiers from the Guards Brigade, an elite unit in the Nigerian Army, have arrested four suspected human traffickers and rescued 69 children.

Yusuf Musa, Guards Brigade’s Commander, said the traffickers were intercepted around Masaka area of Abuja. The trafficked children, he said, are aged between six and ten years old and have been handed over to the National Agency for Prohibition in Trafficking Persons and other related offences, NAPTIP, in Lafia, Nasarawa state capital, for further investigation. Musa added that the suspects are in police custody.

Also, Garba Muhammed, another officer, who spoke said “The suspect claimed he was taking the children to a Quranic school,”

He explained that when the suspect and those in his company were asked further questions by the soldiers, they could not answer properly, which prompted their arrest.
