A 47 year-old man identified as Bernard James, has been arrested by the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) for allegedly attempting to traffic two women to Saudi Arabia.
The Lagos State Commandant of the corps, Mr Tajudeen Balogun, said the suspect was arrested at Yaba. According to him, the suspect was arrested alongside two ladies, Memunat Isiaka, 18, and Salamatu Alhassan, 22, following a tip-off.
James, reportedly worked with accomplices in Ghana, who sent girls to him for trafficking to Saudi Arabia, where they would work as housemaids.
It was learnt that one Theresa, who lives in Accra, had procured Ghanaian passports and Saudi Arabia visas for four girls, but was unable to facilitate their travelling through Accra airport due to some immigration laws.
She, however, contacted James to get the victims cleared at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos. James assured her of their clearance and requested $800 to bribe immigration officials.
