Three Trafficked Teenage Girls From Ebonyi State Rescued In Ghana

Three teenage girls who were reportedly trafficked to Ghana from Ebonyi State’s Ikwo Local Government Area have been rescued.

The girls were saved by Mr. Meba Igwe, the Chairman of the Ikwo Development Union’s Lagos branch. Their names were Ogah Chinecherem from Ohatekwe Amagu, Odor Favour from Abina Amagu, and Osinachi Nweke Umanyi from Ndioduma Omege Echara.

They were allegedly trafficked by Mrs. Abigail Nweke, a member of the same local government, and given to a woman from Cross River, whose identity was not immediately known, to be transported to Ghana.

It is said that in January of this year, the teenagers moved out of their separate houses.

They were first transported to Lagos, where they were to be transferred to Ghana, but border patrol immigration police stopped them there.
