The case was reported to the State Command by one Chief Olaleye Gabriel who complained that her daughter has been transported to Libya without his knowledge before embarking on the journey and he also suspected that she has been forcefully lured into prostitution in Libya.

The State Commandant Mr. John Fayemi urged parents in Ekiti State to take care of their children and discourage them from unknown Agents and unrealistic greener pastures that will always turn out to be death traps for them.

According to him, the case file and the suspect will be transferred to NAPTIP for urgent attention as the need to bring back the victim is essential so as to quickly rehabilitate her and incorporate her to the society.
