Giving an update on the development, the NiDCOM chairperson said the suspected trafficker has been arrested, adding that a collective effort is needed to apprehend perpetrators of human trafficking.

“We must declare a war against human traffickers,” Dabiri-Erewa said.

She said the girls would be handed over to the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP).
