Nigerian woman in court over alleged human trafficking

A 34-year-old Nigerian woman, Miracle Chukwumezi Ebu, has appeared before the Kwabenya Circuit Court for alleged human trafficking.

She is reported to have trafficked five girls from her country to Accra to engage in commercial sex trade.

She has, however, denied the offence and has been granted a GH¢30,000 bail with two sureties.

The court, presided over by Ms. Ellen Lordina Serwaa Mireku, ordered her to make her next appearance on December 07.

Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Mary Ahafianyo said the five trafficked girls – Princes Frances, Confident Clement, Gennifer Okafor, Nora Pete and Sandra Daniel, were rounded up together with 20 other suspected commercial sex workers in a police swoop on November 15, at about 7:30pm.

She said a search conducted on them uncovered both used and unused condoms and during police interrogation, they mentioned Ebu as the person who brought them to Ghana.

They added that the accused collected from them cash ranging from GH¢2,500 and GH¢3,500.
